Sagamore Hill National Historic SiteThe Old Barn was gone and the farm needed a replacement. Edith Roosevelt oversaw the plans for what became the New Barn, built in 1907. To reduce costs, she eliminated the concrete-lined basement meant for the cows, and instead planned to keep them on the ground floor with the hay and the horses. However, superintendent Robert Gillespie recalled that the New Barn was used to store equipment and hay; animals were never kept there.After the Stable and Lodge burned down in 1944, Edith ordered the New Barn converted to living quarters for the farm manager. Today, the National Park Service still uses the New Barn as housing. It is not open to the public.
