Story of the Corn Crib Floating Down the Stream

The corn crib that was turned into a cabin and later on ended up floating down the creek at Red Barn. Thankfully no visitors were inside and it wasn't rented that day! Younger couples with kids loved this option because it was next to the creek and set up to have family accommodations. Dennis said that it was 1-2 years after they sold the Red Barn. The corn crib was only 6-8 feet away from the stream, so when the stream flooded the crib went with it one time. "Apparently it looked like a fishing bobber going down the stream."
