Pennies from History

As we've taken down barns over the past 5 years we've come across so many tales and stories. We have always heard the story of a coin being hammered over the door of a newly built barn to bring good luck and fortune to the farm. Today we finally found one in the barn we're dismantling in Patriot, Ohio! This 1891 Indian Head penny sat unnoticed for over 100 years until we came along to rescue the collapsing barn. We love uncovering pieces of American history and sharing them with you.
