Yy

Yankee Hinge

Long, narrow boards on the side of a tobacco curing barn that run vertically and are hinged at the top. These are found on tobacco barns in the Connecticut River Valley, which is why they are called Yankee hinges. They are swung open to lower the temperature in a barn and increase air flow when needed.
