I took this photo of a dairy barn during one of our road trips. This was constructed in 1923. It’s purpose was to provide dairy products for Central State Hospital in Pineville, LA, where it was built upon its grounds. However, state officials had been planning to move the State Hospital to a new location, so the historic barn is in danger of deterioration or neglect, if not demolition. Currently, a committee, Save the Dairy Barn at Buhlow Lake, is being run to save and preserve this ancient structure.
This barn sitting on top of a hill that overlooks Fort Buhlow Lake is one of the 10 most endangered historic sites in Louisiana.
