Gin-Gang


A gin-gang (sometimes written as gingang) was a horse-engine house, usually a round building, attached to a threshing barn. A threshing machine in the barn was connected to the gin gang via wooden gears, drive shafts and drive belt, powered by a horse which walked round and round inside the gin gang. They were common on farms in the 18th and early 19th centuries.
