Details of Old Stone Barn
Andre Weltman January 2010
Folks from DCNR and even PHMC have now taken a more active interest in the crumbling barn wall. There are definite plans to install a simple split-rail fence as a passive safety barrier around the structure (perhaps with some warning and interpretive signs) as soon as the ground softens up with the long-hoped-for return of warmer weather. Further action to try to prevent the stone wall from collapse is under discussion, but may be rather costly. As a first step toward installing a fence -- and possibly to enhance any possible work towards saving the structure from the ravages of gravity and time -- the 3 pine trees in front are now gone, as is much of the brush and smaller trees around the rear/interior of the barn.
