Wild Goose Chase

The owners selected this pattern because they liked the vivid colors.   This bank barn, constructed of wood and stone, was originally located further south in the field that is east of their home, and was moved in approximately 1900.   Steel beams were placed under the first floor in the late 1950s or early 60s.   The barn originally housed horses and cattle, and small implements of the 1800s.   In the 1900s, it was primarily used to house tractors, other machinery and cattle.   Then, in later years, it was used for housing 4-H cattle and small implements.   The family’s children were members of 4-H.

Located northeast of Troy.   From Troy, take N.
