    Jim McKenna stands on the door sill of his old barn shortly after it had been moved to its new foundation and while a work crew continued to edge it onto just the right spot. Nearby is one of the many I-beans that were run though the structure side to side to secured it with braces for stability during the tricky moving maneuver. Behind is one of two rows of horse stalls that run almost the 50-foot length of the barn. Photo by Jack M. Foley.
