Photo 26-CKE-26


This is the farmplace at HWY C between the house and barn and Short Road in VoSALA, The barn is in process of being torn down, the House still remains . there is another view on the roll

I currently live in this house. It was built in the 1880s (most likely by the Cass family) and was originally attached with the buildings across the street (Hwy C/Wilmot Road). The property across the street is now a tree farm. The road at the bottom of the photo is 98th Street. The large barn And large rounded top building remain. The silos and the smaller buildings are gone. The large barn is still standing, but Mother Nature is chipping away at it. The fantastic Burr Oak tree (visible just above the house) is still there and healthy.

So glad to hear that the east and south sides of the barn were repaired!

Structre recorded in 1851 D Cass 160 acres At this time was using Liberty or Crypress for Postals, Not Salem
