The original barn was destroyed by fire on November 17, 2007. In the spring of 2008, the Museum's Building & Grounds Committee, along with volunteers from the community began rebuilding the barn. The project was completed in the spring of 2009.
The photo on the left depicts the way the barn looked when the Museum purchased the property in 2003. The photo on the right is what remained of the barn after the November 2007 fire.
