The Springfield Barn, which overlooks Williamsport's Byron Memorial Park, was built circa 1755 by Otho Holland Williams, the founder of Williamsport. The Town of Williamsport purchased this barn in 1987. The Springfield Barn is one of the largest barns in the state of Maryland. This eight bay frame barn is 56 feet wide and nearly 168 feet long with a raised-seam roof. The first section, built over 200 years ago and set on stone foundations, is a four-bay bank barn with two open brick granaries. One of these has simple open brickwork ventilation holes. The other four bays were built somewhat later and in the 1880's, Victorian trim and nine ventilators were added along the ridge of the roof. Within the barn, the original cedar shakes are still visible.

Williamsport is working to preserve the barn's historic past and make it a part of our present community life.

 

 

 

 

 

Along the Civil War Fence row surrounding the Springfield Barn, 180 trees were recently planted and dedicated to fallen soldiers from the Civil War era. The Town of Williamsport partnered with The Journey Through Hallowed Ground and the Maryland Forestry Service to plant these trees and have them dedicated as part of The Journey Through Hallowed Ground’s Living Legacy Tree Planting Project. The Living Legacy project is a bold initiative that commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War. Through this program, one tree will be planted for each of the 620,000 soldiers who died during one of the most defining moments in American history. The trees planted will be geo-tagged for an interactive learning experience.
