Century-Old Barn, Silo to be Moved to Allwine Prairie Preserve
Big changes are happening at Nebraska's Allwine Prairie Preserve – two big changes to be exact.
On Thursday, Jan. 12, a barn and silo will be moved from their current locations at 180th and Ida streets to Allwine Prairie Preserve, located at 148th and State streets. The move will take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Both structures are over 100 years old and were donated by Barbi Hayes, whose family has owned farms in the area since the 1800s. Along with the donation of the barn and silo, Hayes donated $605,000 to restore the structures into state-of-the-art environmental education and research facilities; an anonymous donor gave an additional $50,000.
