OUR PLAN TO REBUILD THE OLD COMMERCIAL BUILDING
Become a Partner in Raising the Barn.

The “Old Commercial Building” as we know it was constructed right around WWII with used lumber and materials. It was built entirely by volunteers and has undergone several minor renovations over the years since. The Old Commercial Building is the iconic old barn that is the Caruthers Fair. It has withstood years of use with limited structural maintenance. Many of the posts, rafters and structural supports are 70 years old and some of this same structural wood was “previously used” when the barn was built. The barn has served us well but it is now time to replace the grand old structure while maintaing the charm that we all have grown to know and love. Bids for a new building have been sought and it is estimated that to replace the old building with one having the same character will cost in the neighborhood of $400,000.
