The Barn houses the Lockport Fire Department Exhibit.

The remainder of the Barn contains exhibits highlighting trades that were essential for living and working in Niagara County. These trades include the blacksmith, the cooper, the carpenter and the cobbler. Also in the Barn are exhibits devoted to agriculture and farming.
