Celebrate and Enjoy!
History of Billy's Barn
The spirit of Billy's Barn began decades ago. Billy Robinson raised
his family here and was well known for the repair of watches, dolls, woodwork, and bicycles in the China Spring community. In 2004, we became next door neighbors and enjoyed many hours visiting with him over projects and coffee. His barn was overstocked with every tool, implement, bolt, or nut that might ever be needed for any project – big or small. Billy was always available to teach, share, and complete any job. His barn had an open door policy for tools and conversation. He truly understood what it meant to be a good neighbor.
His passion was enjoying the country life, watching our horses in
the pasture, and repairing bicycles for neighborhood families. It was
such a delight to watch young children come to choose their favorite
bicycle and hear him say, “that one will be 75 cents!” Their faces lit up
with joy receiving Billy's gift. Upon renovation, our family was gifted
with one of his original repair jobs - a bicycle built for four! To the
delight of many local blind children this bike allowed three of them
and one sighted young rider to experience a bike's freedom.
In 2017, we bought the property from his children. It is our desire
to preserve his memory here. The Guest Haus, originally his shop, has
been remodeled into a bed and breakfast for overnight enjoyment.
The wood from the original home was repurposed as the beautiful
interior barn walls and picnic tables. The home's shutters edge the
stage under the covered patio and the original front door now allows
access from the back pasture.
In keeping with his giving spirit, fond memories,
and lessons of life's simple pleasures
