Only if either your (barn) router has a extender/repeater or bridge capability, or it is compatible with the DD-WRT firmware in which case you will be able to flash it and do all of the above.
Otherwise you will need to put out about $40 - $50 to get an extender/repeater or bridge.
But even still, the 250ft is pretty far and the signal may be low on the receiving end...

If you need internet for the remote building you may want to consider getting a wireless bridge. A wireless bridge is a device that connects to the network and provides a wired connection. Then its like having a 250 ft long cat 5 cable but wireless. An example of a device like this is an Engenius ENH200.
