After weeks of reconstruction, the barn is beginning to look like its old self.
Three of the four walls have been re-sided with volunteers currently laboring to rebuild the fourth, fresh coats of paint have added new life to the aging structure, and within weeks, the barn will be completely restored.
“We’re about 70 percent done overall,” said Cuyahoga Falls Law Director Paul Janis who’s leading the volunteer effort.
After the final wall is rebuilt, city and volunteer members will get to work on the doors and windows.
The Keyser barn bicentennial dedication ceremony will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 3:30 p.m., said Cuyahoga Falls Service Director Valerie Wax Carr. An ice cream social will run from 3 to 5 p.m. and The Community Band will be providing the music and entertainment.
Members of the Keyser family will be on hand for the dedication. The event is free and open to the public.
