Even during the COVID-19 virus crisis the barn-raising project continues to make progress. The structure is coming together and hopefully continues to remain on schedule. The construction is being done all outdoors and the workers remain vigilant following the CDC guidelines by keeping a safe distance from others as they work on different sections of the project.

Previously, volunteers stained 5000 square feet of barn boards in three days. Also, the timber framing is complete and the Ohio Barn Builders are now back home. The next phase in the project is to stain the interior boards. Hopefully, this phase of the barn raising will be completed sometime soon in the near future.



Please review the Mint Hill Historical Society’s Facebook page for all updates as the community moves forward with the project. This is the non-profits first barn raising and they would appreciate all the volunteers possible at the appropriate time during the upcoming months ahead.
