Blake Barn, All-State Barn Tour
Blake barn in 2013, before renovation. The lean-to can be seen on the left side and rear of the barn.
The photo below of the Blake barn, taken Aug 19, 2015, shows that the lean-to section has been removed. The lean-to was added in 1945, so was not part of the original barn, built about 1902.
