Corn Crib

Yew Dell Architecture Tour

  • This small concrete block building was used as a place to store grain for the Klein farm livestock. At times it was also used as a milking shed.
  • The holes in the concrete sides of the building allowed for air circulation for grain storage.
  • In front of the corn crib is the pet cemetery. This serves as a resting place for Klein family pets. The carved cat head stone is a memorial to Persimmon, our first Yew Dell Botanical Gardens garden cat.
  • Klein carved the headstones, beginning his interest in stone carving which is seen all around the grounds.
