The barn is gone. The slate roof has been replaced, and an addition has been made to the second floor. My husband and I purchased the property in 2015

I believe it was originally referred to as β€œthe Sherk’s place,” though I am not sure about the spelling.

It would have been Shirk. Ben Shirk was a dairy farmer who owned this farm when I was growing up...I spent several mornings helping with milking in the big barn. I grew up one house to the south (image 27). All of the buildings in image 27 are gone now.

Oh wow! Thank you for the information. We love this house, and I am trying to find out all the information I can about it.😊

Ben Shirk was my bus driver in the early 70's ! What a sweet man !!

Mary, what a small world
