Long Description:
This barn is still in use. It houses horses and other farm animals kept on this farm which is surrounded by commercial property.

The owner of the farm passed away less than a year ago. He was a wonderful individual and a multimillionaire..not from the farming operation but from other business transactions including selling off parcels of land to shopping centers and other business interests. His generosity toward people and especially children is legendary in this area. I am proud that I knew the man.

The road that the farm is located on is named for an ancestor of his wife who was the first female United States Senator. More info (visit link)

John kept the animals on the farm more or less as a hobby and they are now being cared for by his decendents.
