Charles Housh, the oldest great-grandson of C. T. Good, spoke at the first January board of education meeting, asking that his family’s barn be left in place. He also brought his son to the meeting (We recorded his plea to save the barn. Watch him — he speaks last —  in the video here).

Jeanetta HoushToday’s newspaper printed an obituary for Charles’s mother, Jeanetta Housh. Jeanetta had been in contact with a  few barn lovers and knew that people were fighting to save the barn. She verbalized that she appreciated the effort and took comfort knowing that other people valued the barn.
