Otros aspectos destacables

The barn was said to be originally built by Major General John Stark for his son Caleb just after the Revolutionary War in Dunbarton, NH. There is a picture of Stark Barn in NH prior to dismantling, tagging and reconstruction in Odessa, FL.

John Stark was a General in the Continental Army who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill and Battle of Bennington and others. General Stark reinforce General George Washington's troops in Delaware. He was on the panel for the court martial of Major Benedict Arnold for treason and other high crimes. Stark coined the inspirational state motto for New Hampshire “live free or die".

John Stark's father and Caleb Stark's grandfather, Archibald Stark was born at Glasgow, Scotland in 1697, and received his education in the university of that city. When quite young, he went with his father to Londonderry, in the north of Ireland, where he married Eleanor Nichols, the daughter of a fellow immigrant from Scotland.

In 1720 he embarked for America in company with many of his country men, and after a tedious voyage in which his children died, the ship arrived in Boston in late autumn. Many of them arrived ill with smallpox, and they were not permitted to land, but went to the present town of Wiscasset, on the Maine coast, where they spent the winter.

The following year he joined the Scotch-Irish settlers in what is now called Londonderry, where he lived until 1736. His home was about two miles south of the village of East Derry. During that year (1736) his buildings were destroyed by fire, and instead of rebuilding he removed to Harrytown [Manchester] and settled on the Thaxter grant a short distance above Amoskeag falls. He built the house now standing at the east end of the Amoskeag bridge, which was occupied for many years by the widow of Jonas Page.

For the safety of the people in his immediate vicinity a fort was built at Amoskeag, which was called Starks' Fort. On the 9th of March 1747, he petitioned His Excellency, Benning Wentworth, Esq. , that a competent number of soldiers may be allowed him to be station at his garrison to guard and defend him and others in performing their necessary labors.

He was the first named grantee and one of the principal proprietors, and in compliment to him the town of Dunbarton was known as Starkstown for fourteen years, until 1765. Archibald Stark died in Derryfield [Manchester] 25 June, 1758 and was buried in what was known as the Christian brook cemetery, which was situated about where the north end of the Manchester locomotive works later stood. The bluff on which it was situated was some thirty or more feet high and close to Canal street, and was leveled to make way for a street that was put through just north of the locomotive works as then built. This street was afterwards discontinued so that the locomotive works could enlarge their plant and still have the same under one roof.

A low slate headstone in the south-westerly corner of the Valley cemetery marks the spot where the remains of Archibald Stark now repose, and bears this inscription: "HERE LYES THE BODY OF Mr. / ARCHIBALD STARK HE / Departed This Life June 25th / 1758 Aged 61 Years." / His wife was Eleanor "Hellen " Nichols whom he married in Londonderry, Ireland.

After the death of Archibald Stark, his land was divided among his four sons: William, John, Samuel and Archibald.

Come and relive history at Stark Barn; this is a very unique experience and a “must stay" as the 1776 era is depicted in pictures, books, antiques and in the spirit of the barn.

A book with the Memoir and Official Correspondence of General John Stark with Notices of Several Other Officers of the American Revolution written by his son Caleb Stark is available in each room

Stark Barn has all the plus checkpoints anyone could want in an Inn. #1: Unique historic barn setting #2: Upscale design and interiors #3: Clean and inviting #4: Full kitchen available #5: The area is as relaxing or as active as you prefer #6: Incredibly friendly and attentive owners. My husband and I had wanted to do the U-Pick Blueberry Harvest for some time, and we hit it just right the last week of April. Such a fun and restorative 4 days !! The area has extremely active bicycling trails, so next time for sure the bikes will be coming with us. Next to Stark Barn is a beautiful preserve for walking or biking, as well as many scenic country roads. For those of us who live in Florida, the Stark Barn is an ideal way to escape for a quick and easy retreat. All of our friends are so curious about this hidden gem, can't wait to come again !!

This place was amazing, it is secluded with nature trails and bike trails everywhere but only a short ride to resteraunts and shops. The inside was amazing with all the amenities and you would expect from a hotel while giving you a glimpse of living in the 1800s. Would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. When i showed this place to my co-workers everybody was wanting to schedule a stay. John and Martha were perfect and made arrangements for an 8pm check in easy.

The Stark Barn is a beautiful, historic and extremely warm place to stay and experience in Odessa, Florida. John and Martha are truly wonderful, loving folks who care deeply about the barn and property and it shows! If you are planning to stay anywhere near Odessa, don't bother looking any further, book here. The property is beautiful. The barn is so cozy, spacious and yet, you feel like you walked back in time (without sacrificing any modern day conveniences). You feel like you are out in the country, yet close enough to everything else you'd want to experience in the area!

The Stark Barn and the hosts, John and Martha are so amazingly that you have to "be here" to experience it, so difficult to put into words how grateful we are to have had this experience. The barn's wood and furnishings have such rich history, we found ourselves saying "if only these walls could talk" over and over. We look forward to staying here again.

We are short of superlatives to describe this place and their hosts. What a unique experience. You should probably book this place while you can, i'd bet it's going to get hard to find a spot available, because they deserve it.
