I believe this is the Nichol's farm between Caribou and Limestone. I hauled potatoes from this farm in 1969 or 1970 when Vaulsing owned the farm. There was a tunnel from the left into the cellar where potatoes were stored. The foreman at the time was Norris Embleton & John Gorman. I have a painting of this and understand there was a competition with the Ward Brothers for the largest barn. The original barn Burt and I believe this is the second barn. I had a personal conversation with Homer Ward talking about the barns. I believe the property is owned by Smiths Farm now. The barn is no longer there.

Lived here when I was a kid. Moved away in 1977. What a great place to grow up. Dad worked on the farm for CA Powers and Vahlsing.

I was 2 when Mum and Dad moved here in May of 1959.What memories I have of this place.

It was known as the biggest barn in Maine. I remember when the barn burned in the 1980s. That fire could be seen by just about everyone in Limestone, and a lot of people in Fort and Caribou.

The original 2 barns, and the 7 story one belonged to my great grand father. :)
