The dismantling of the barn across the street is part of the reason I was stirred to continue research the history of the house. It was no longer tied to this piece of property, and the owner had sold it. The barn has actually been down for more than a week, but a flatbed truck was finally loaded yesterday with all of the huge logs used to fashion the barn, which I can only assume was as old as our house. It is a shame, but from what I was told the wood will be used to make new houses, among other things. It’s certainly a better scenario than the barn continuing to remain abandoned and fall into further disrepair. A couple from California flew out to personally oversee sections that were to be used for their own house. Now the only thing that remains is the foundation, which will probably be dismantled at some point as well. I will miss it.
The above pic was taken in 2010. Here are some other pictures, most were taken from an iPhone, including some of the interior.
