The Kemp Barn is a historic barn at 186 Summer Avenue in Reading, Massachusetts, USA. Built in 1853, it has exceptionally sophisticated Italianate styling for an outbuilding. The barn was built for the "gentleman's farm" of Robert "Father" Kemp, who is best known for leading the Old Folks Concerts, a popular mid-18th-century singing tour.
The current owner, Debra A Stackpole, has applied for a demolition permit for both the house and the barn. Her plan is to sell the lots to a company looking to erect a school. A Demolition Delay hearing is scheduled for 7/24/14 at town hall to halt the sale process for 6 months while an alternative is found. If anyone has a suggestion on how to prevent the demolition from occurring or may be interested in purchasing the property, please call Ann Gentile @ 781-942-6608.
