The 55-ton building, built in 1820 as a workshop for the manufacture of small agricultural implements, was lowered onto a new foundation earlier today as part of an extensive restoration.  The goal, said Tim Baker of Great Northern Barns, who is working on the project, is to restore it to the condition in which it was built by the Shakers, and now the store will have a new facade, siding and chimneys.
