The Tarp Is Off Of The Barn!
Now that is worth celebrating! This grand ol' livery barn was built back in 1916. There have been several efforts and work parties to restore this barn but with the leaking roof it became a race against time. Volunteers came together and got a new shake roof on the barn last fall. Come see this important part of our heritage and meet the Darrington Historical Society. They would love to tell you the story of this old barn and other local history.
