1. Memorial Building Marker
Inscription.  
This small building originally was a tool shed used by railroad workers in the late 1800s / early 1900s. When the Adkins living history complex was beginning to take form, the workmen's sheds were adapted to serve as exhibit buildings.

A collection of artifacts related to the sacrifices of the many men from the Barren Creek area in the First and Second World Wars and other military service is presented to remind visitors of all those who have gave so much to preserve our freedoms.

The gravestones were saved from destruction and moved to this site. The man was a local resident who fought in the Revolutionary War.
 
Erected by Westside Historical Society. (Marker Number 6.)
