Published: April 30,2012
ROLLING FORK — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers expect to have the remains of the iconic Red Barn removed by June 15.
The barn off U.S. 61 North was built by the Graft family in 1918, the old barn collapsed in heavy winds nearly a year ago.
Corps spokesman Kavanaugh Breazeale tells the Vicksburg Post work to take down what’s left of the exterior wooden walls and doors will begin around May 15. He says two silos next to the barn will stay.
He says what happens to the wood once it’s down will be up to Mississippi’s Lower Delta Partnership, a cultural development group of individuals and private and public agencies.
