Maplenol Barn moving across field

A couple things about moving the barn that came up. Very late in the game.

  • Someone offered to buy the barn for $5,000 and then donate it to Friends of the Maplenol Barn at Southwoods Park
  • Someone offered to buy the barn for $1 and then use it for a yearround art and farmers market in Valley Junction

Two other things about moving the barn. Not learned late in the game.
  • The church has 30 days to place the barn on a foundation. After that time, an equipment rental fee of $25/day must be paid to the mover.
  • The district paid MidAmerican about $20,000 for the estimated cost of the removal, relocation, or transfer of electric lines during the relocation of the barn. The actual cost is estimated to be about half that price. Twenty years ago, one historic structure owner was charged $45,000 for the same service for an 8-block relocation.
