First Barn Dance at the Reconstructed Bell Barn

2010-10-02

The magnificent wooden loft of the reconstructed Bell Barn was the site for a really good foot-stompin olde tyme barn dance on October 2, 2010. The original loft was used to store tons of hay for the horses stabled below; now it was the scene for 125 people who could dance to their heart's content. Moving to the music of Ken Runge and Friends of Edenwold, no one seemed to want to quit dancing - so that was a good sign. Proceeds of about $2,500 will go towards paying off the remainder of the Bell Barn reconstruction costs.
