The historic 1877 Star Barn and its ancillary structures have been disassembled and moved from Middletown, Pennsylvania to Stone Gables Estate in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania where they are being meticulously reconstructed and restored. To commemorate the historic re-raising of The Star Barn, the "crown jewel" of the complex, the community is invited to attend The Star Barn Raising Festival which will be held July 2 - 4, 2017. While there, people will be able to watch and participate in the re-raising of the timbers, walls, rafters, and center cupola of this Gothic Revival treasure.
