This building adds to a long legacy of education and forward thinking that is the Trinity Pawling School ,which houses approximately 125 students and enrolls 200 more. The Barn, as it’s become known, is used as a temporary dining facility while a new permanent dining hall is being built.
T-P boys and faculty come together for five family style meals a week, a time-honored tradition at the school. After the Barn is vacated in September of 2009, it will become headquarters for the Physical Plant Department.
The exterior Eastern White Pine boards are custom milled by National Barn Company’s very own sawmill. The dimensions of the boards, yielding a full 4/4×12 board, are milled exactly the way a dairy barn of the 1850s would have been.
Post-frame was chosen as an overall economical means to meet a very tight financial budget, while producing a final product with a very rich, warm feel and function. Trinity Pawling’s facility dates back to the 1890s and was once used as a cryptographic or “code-breaking” facility for the U.S. Army during WWI. After the war, the facility was transformed in to what was then known as the country’s first treatment center for “shell shock.”
