Throwback Thursday: First Barn

Happy Thursday!

Did you know that there used to be a barn down on the hill, near where the underpass beneath the railroad tracks are?

It burned down in about 1907. In the field in front of the barn, you can see sheaves of what may be wheat. 

The railroad eventually took 50 feet of the Sisters' land where it bordered the tracks. In exchange, the railroad constructed the front drive.

Many thanks to the SHU Archives and Bill Black for the photos and stories.
