The Sunday School Barn was originally owned by Charles Dougherty and located in Dublin on Dublin Boulevard near Donlon Way.  The Barn was said to have been used for Sunday School and meeting space by local Protestants.  The Barn was later purchased by George Kolb in 1905 and moved to the Kolb Family Farm where it was in continuous use for over 100 years.  In 2009, the Kolb Family gifted the Sunday School Barn, along with the main house and several outbuildings, to the City of Dublin.  The buildings were moved to the Heritage Park in 2011.  Today, the Sunday School Barn is central to Dublin's Historic Park and Museums and is used for a variety of classes, activities, events, small theatrical productions, and meeting space.


The Sunday School Barn includes a large open room and stage with a built-in lighting and sound system.  Rental of the Kolb Sunday School Barn includes the a large grass area facing Donlon Way that can accommodate an outdoor tent (tents require written approval and depending on the size of the tent a permit may be required from the Fire Prevention Division).  The grounds also include a picnic area with ten (10) picnic tables that is situated between the Kolb Sunday School Barn and the Kolb Hay Barn.
