Tales of the Adirondacks, Past & Present: The Red Barn by Joanne Whitney

Red Barn

Our next OurStoryBridge Inc. story share is called The Red Barn by Joanne Whitney. It is the story of the iconic and likely most photographed structure in the Adirondacks. Listen to this story in its entirety at this link.

The Adirondack Almanack will share stories written by those who live, work, and play in the ADK, courtesy of OurStoryBridge Inc. These stories, which will be a combination of current and past events, people, outdoor activities and more, will be published on a weekly basis. The stories will focus on various locations situated in the Adirondack region, including the High Peaks, the town of Keene, and many other areas around the Park. Story topics include arts & culture, catastrophes, work, people, outdoor activities, daily life, community, and natural & man-made environments.
