Historic Mt. Lake area barn coming down

An historic barn in the Mt. Lake area is in the process of being taken down. The large wooden barn on the Burton and Karin Stoesz farmsite has been a familiar sight for neighbors and others in the Mt. Lake area for over 90 years. The barn, built in the 1930s, is located approximately one-half mile east of the County Road 1 and 370th Street intersection. Waldo and Geneva Stoesz lived and raised their family on the same farmsite for close to 45 years. According to Waldo, their son, Burton, was 3 years old when the family purchased the farm.
