An old barn has gone to a new home in Sheridan County. Sheridan Media's Pat Blair has the report.


The old white barn that's been on Mydland Road for decades has arrived at its new home – almost. The barn was moved Thursday to the top of the hill on Cary Sampson's ranch off Keystone Road, just past the “Dry Weather Road” sign. But the structure will not be moved farther until the road is dry, and that may be a while says new owner Sampson. He said in a lot of years, the road stays muddy all spring.

When weather and road conditions allow, the barn will be moved to its permanent site at the bottom of the hill. Sampson said he bought the barn because not many of the old white barns of that style are still around. He said he likes the big old barns and hates to see them disappear.

Sampson said people have told him the barn was used for dances in the 1930s and 40s.
