Preservation Greensboro Development Fund is pleased to offer the Sedgefield Showgrounds historic barn (circa. 1927) for adaptive renovation and reuse.
The beautiful barn at Sedgefield Stables and Showgrounds is the last remaining element of the once 18-acre complex built as an amenity to the Sedgefield community. Incorporated in 1925, the Sedgefield Country Club offered country homes and recreational opportunities to residents and members, including a Donald Ross-designed golf course, horse riding and boarding facilities, social events and foxhunts.
The large, monitor-roof barn at Sedgefield Stables was constructed around 1927, and by the 1940s the complex was integral to the area’s equestrian community. The complex became home of the Sedgefield Horse Show in the mid-1930s and was the starting point of the annual Sedgefield Hunt. The barn has been in continuous use from 1927 until 2021.
The barn’s original complex was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 for its architectural significance and association with the recreational and social life of Sedgefield residents. The barn comes with +/- one acre of land. The ground floor is approximately 7,000 square feet under roof.
