This historic barn built in the 1920s on Fred Barg’s farm north of Park Rapids was blown down in the Memorial Day storm. A grandson of the man who built the barn said he doesn’t have any pictures of the barn, although he knows many people took pictures there when it was still standing. Anyone with photos featuring this barn is invited to share them with the Enterprise by email to lskarpness@parkrapidsenterprise.com by 3 p.m. Monday for an upcoming feature story about this landmark. Please attach a jpg of the photo in a large size (1mb or larger preferred) and include the date the photo was taken, the names of any people in the photo and the name of the photographer.
