Hay Barn
At the time of its construction, the Hay Barn was near
the center of farming activity, but as more land was
purchased and the farming moved elsewhere, the
structure was no longer needed as a hay press.
Following a fire in January 1915, the building
remained abandoned. Doris Duke used the ruins as
an outdoor sculpture gallery, placing individual
marble statues of human figures in linear
arrangements along the walls, which can still be
seen today. Click the picture to see The Barn

Sycamore Allee
The park is connected by 32 miles of roadway
planned, designed, executed and improved upon by
J.B. Duke. This Sycamore/London Plane allée was
planted at the turn of the century and provides
nesting opportunities for a variety of birds.
