This photo was displayed as a part of the Tired old Barns Exhibit from January through March 1997 in the Heritage Room at the Salem Public Library. The photo is of a very old log structure on Highway 55 near Cascade, Idaho. It was entirely of log construction with a crude ladder at one end to a loft area on the second level. There is a high window at that end under the loft opening. Along the long wall of the structure there is a doorway in the middle with a considerable amount of wall on both sides of it deteriorated enough to provide openings to the inside. It appears to have been just patched over with long pieces of lumber. Without knowing what the two hidden walls are like, it is difficult to conceive where equipment could have been gotten inside. It would be very interesting to know what the actual history of this structure is and when it was built. The photo was taken by Al Jones and was on loan from the Marion County Historical Society, Salem, Oregon.
