History moving down the road ...

On July 19th, a landmark barn was slowly moved from the spread owned by Terry Buchert to Tom Harty’s place. Several generations of people have grown up with the 30’x60’ barn as a sight recognizable from a long ways off from every direction.

In 1906, Joseph Froslie brought his wife, Anna Peterson, to the sparsely-populated Haakon County area. They homesteaded a spread north of a community that in 1907 would become the city of Philip.

Froslie built and used other out-buildings, but nothing big enough to really do the job.
