Just as you come into Ferndale, on the right hand side there sits a large half barn. Not that half of it fell down, it was just built that way. This particular example must have been quite fancy in its prime, as it has quite a bit of gingerbread for a house, much less a barn. Unfortunately, it stands in the way of progress, sitting on a lot where the hardware store wants to relocate. Tough choice, save an old barn, or get a new hardware store. George Enos, the carriage driver, gave me a tour of the barn as I might be interested in saving some of the materials if it does get torn down for use in our new garage. While we were inside we disturbed this barn owl, who showed his displeasure by flying back and forth inside the barn. Quite a site as it had a very large wingspan.
