Renovations on the old barn at the Allen County Farm Park are moving along.

Estimated to have been built as early as 1857, the barn is currently going through renovations to be used as a storage facility for the park. Most recently, the barn was lifted and new foundation was poured but there's still plenty work left to be done.

"The next step will be to lower the barn back down on the new foundation and the new framing," says Deputy Director of the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park district Tyler Black. "Then we will wrap the barn in metal and then repaint the bicentennial logo on the front, and we will have kind of an Allen County themed feel to the bicentennial logo."

The barn is expected to finish around mid-summer.
