Title: Old Barn Torn Down
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

The barn which had stood on the rear of Mrs. C.F. Robinson's lot on Perry Street was torn down last week and reconstructed into a wood and coal shed. A.B. Robinson was head carpenter and superintendent of the job. This was one of the oldest barns in the city and had stood on this lot for over fifty years. The boards used in its construction are of black walnut and white oak and are still in a good state of preservation. The boards were so dry and hard that the nails would hardly penetrate them. From all appearances the wood shed is good for another fifty years, at the end of which time there will be enough sound lumber left no doubt to build a hen house.
