Leo Fitzpatrick Family Barn

-A A +A
1914; 1994–2004 rehabilitation. 10845 E. Adams Rd., 8 miles west of Beaverton

Doing much of the work himself, Leo Fitzpatrick rehabilitated the family's large barn. Structural reinforcement, a new roof, and painting put the barn back in service as storage for machinery, tools, and straw. Today the barn is the centerpiece of the family farm in an area of Amish farms. For preserving the barn and using it in their daily operations, Successful Farming magazine and the National Trust for Historic Preservation awarded Fitzpatrick the 2004 Barn Again! Award.
