Another Barn for Barack
Kris Krendl wrote in to tell us about Ohio’s Second Barn for Barack. Located in the “Greater Lima Area” in western Ohio – east of Ft. Wayne, Indiana; north of Dayton; and South of Toledo, the Barn is located on State Route 66 between Delphos to the north and Spencerville to the south about 1 mile north of the intersection of Route 66 and State Route 81.
The barn belongs to Kris’ sister, Karri Krendl, and her husband, Dan Dardio. It was built by Kris and Karri’s father in the late 30′s using wood he cut on the farm and concrete blocks that he made. Two gallons of paint and about 12 hours of work on the cherrypicker and scaffold, with Don Dix (Kris’s husband) as the safety man on the premises and handled the pick-up and set up of the equipment as well as monitoring that Kris remembered to hook and unhook the harness. Karri Krendl and Dan Dardio, the barn owners, provided lots of additional labor plus food for the celebration. Local newsies showed up just in time for the finishing touches and the party!
These folks report they all had a wonderful time doing this, and would be happy to paint another Barn for Barack any time! Enjoy the pictures.
