The barn was said to be originally built by Major General John Stark for his son Caleb. John Stark was a Major General in the Continental Army who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill and Battle of Bennington, Stark coined the inspirational state motto for New Hampshire “live free or die". Come and relive history at Stark Barn; this is a very unique experience and a “must stay" as the 1776 era is depicted in pictures, books, antiques and in the spirit of the barn.

William Stark (April 1, 1724 – August 27, 1776) was a Revolutionary War era officer. He was the brother of celebrated Revolutionary war hero John Stark.

Early life

William Stark was born in Londonderry, New Hampshire.[1] He was with his brother John Stark, David Stinson and Amos Eastman, hunting along the Baker River, a tributary of the Pemigewasset River, on 28 April 1752, when John Stark and Amos Eastman were captured and David Stinson was killed by Abenaki Indians. William escaped in his canoe after being warned by his brother.


During the French and Indian War Stark commanded a company of Rogers' Rangers in northern New York and Nova Scotia where he served under James Rogers. He took part in the assaults on Fortress Louisbourg in 1758, the St. John River Campaign and Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759. Early in the American Revolution, Stark did not join the New Hampshire Militia forces in the Siege of Boston, but the sounds of the Battle of Bunker Hill could be heard at his home in Dunbarton, New Hampshire, and he left on his swiftest horse to fight, but he arrived too late and the battle had already ended.

Both General John Sullivan and Colonel Jonathan Moulton recommended Stark to command the new regiment being raised in New Hampshire for service with the Continental Army in the invasion of Canada, but the New Hampshire General Assembly gave the command to Timothy Bedel, a former subordinate of Stark's. Stark, feeling ill-used by his home state, left for New York City, which was occupied by the British Army, and offered his services to them. The British made him a lieutenant colonel of Loyalist troops.

Stark's property in New Hampshire was confiscated by the revolutionary government.


Stark died from injuries he received in falling from his horse in Long Island, New York during the Battle of Long Island on August 27, 1776.

William Stark" he is buried in: Lyme Plain Cemetery in Lyme, Grafton County, New Hampshire 29I".

Personal life

William Stark was the son of Archibald and Eleanor Nichols Stark and the older brother of General John Stark, the hero of the Battle of Bennington. He married Mary Stinson on February 22, 1754 and they had seven children: William JR., John, Archibald, Mary, Stephen, Thomas, and James.[3]

A book with the Memoir and Official Correspondence of General John Stark with Notices of Several Other Officers of the American Revolution written by his son Caleb Stark is available in each room

This NE barn surprises with fine decor and lovely appropriate antiques. We had a comfortable stay. The refrigerator is well stocked for you to make tasty breakfast and then some. The nearby bike trail makes a pleasant morning walk.

The Stark Barn was the most perfect place for us to stay. From a couples getaway to a team building location, the barn is a great and easily accessible location. We stayed there for the National Championship game held in Tampa. It was an easy 20 min drive into town. John welcomed us with a tour and story of how the barn came to them in Florida. The whole place was clean, specially thought out, and comfortable. If you don't want to spend time in the common areas, each room has its own TV, key, and privacy. The barn is a one-of-a-kind place to stay, and we would definitely recommend to anyone. What a special place!
