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