Jackson-Washington State Forest Barn & Sawmill – Brownstown IN

Description

Originally a lumber shed adjacent, and sawmill building nearby. A long concrete foundation remaining may have been one of these. A 1935 photo shows a building where the foundation is. About 750’ N of the barn is a ruin- a concrete basement of seemingly 1930s vintage. Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1934.
