Barn No. 1
THE BARN NO 1. PROJECT in 1974
Barn No 1, looking north in 1974. Looking pretty run down. Certainly the
City Council thought so. They thought the Historical Society was crazy
for wanting to save it.
|Barn No 1, Looking south. The building is overgrown and looking
shabby. The tile had been removed, for some reason over the apartment
area and replaced with shingles.
|Main silo on Barn No 1, had been hit by lighting and severely damaged
in the early 1960;s. In this photo looking south it shows a temporary
concrete patch job, that helped hold it together.
|South end of Barn No 1, boarded up showing a new window that was
unfortunately cut on the second floor, when United Insulation occupied
the building. They left in 1974.
|South end closeup of date stone, with the boarded up paladin window
on the second floor. This photo taken in October of 1974 showed a
lot of potential to us, but none to the Barberton City government
of the time. The paladin window, thankfully was just boarded up and
had not ripped been out.
