The Armstrong Barn is a replica of typical large barns found in this area in the mid to late 19th century.  Today this building serves many purposes from activity center for school programs, lunch room, special event activity area and more.  Inside, you'll find examples of artifacts of both our agricutural and industrial past. On special event days, a blacksmith is often found working at the forge recreating the decorative and functional items common in the pre industrial age.  In October 2018, the building was dedicated in honor of Robert "Army" and Joy Armstrong for their many years of service to the growth and preservation of Sylvania History.  Joy was the first Director of the Sylvania Historical Village serving from 1995-2015 while Army served on the board of trustees for over 20 years and helped with the construction, restoration and maintenance of the buildings.
