The old barn no longer was being used for farming, a trade diminishing by the year. But the new owners had a plan for this old barn, they built a large deck on the back, restored the battered wood, and installed heating…all for community functions! The old barn holds square dances, farming competitions for the young, and antique equipment shows on a small scale for the surrounding neighbors. Once a year they all get together and have a huge swap meet in the barn, a country BBQ, and a square dance to end the season!
