Canton in Wayne County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Historic Cady Barn
Originally built before the Civil War, this barn was enlarged and remodeled in 1908 by Aruna Cady, son of one of Canton's first pioneering families. This Barn has been moved from its' original location at McClumpha and Joy Roads, to its' present site in 2006 thanks to a generous donation from Bob Boyer, a local businessman and community supporter. Amish craftsmen were hired to dismantle the barn, and rebuild it on this site utilizing age old craftsmanship and skills.
