In May, 2005, we found out that a gas well was being put in a place that would require removing an old barn that was in disrepair. Parts of the structure were over 100 years old, based on things like hand-wrought hardware and square nails that were used in its construction. John Spann, Broose Dickinson and Scott Huneryager helped preserve much of the wood and hardware, some of which has already been put to use in the mantels of the Rock House. Below is a pictoral record of the Old Red Barn and its demise.
Here's why it had to go.
