This barn, used to feed and harness teams of horses, was originally located at 1606 "R" Street in Bakersfield.

Four horses could be fed and harnessed inside this barn. Chopped hay, stored in the barn's loft, was lowered through a door into a trough located along the wall. Horses were fitted with a leather harness and bridle while they ate. Once harnessed, the horses were hitched to a buggy or wagon to transport people or goods.

The slatted structure adjacent to the barn is a corn crib. A corn crib is used for drying and storing ears of corn.

The City of Bakersfield donated the barn to the Kern County Museum in 1958. Mary Meske donated the corn crib to the museum in 1960.
