I was able to salvage multiple truckloads of beautiful old wood and rusty metal artifacts from this site prior to the demolition of the buildings. There were two barns and a farmhouse plus multiple smaller buildings that were demolished by the Eno River Association due to their advanced state of decay and the Association's desire for safety as the 100 acre property transitions into it's new life as a natural area that will host educational programs and hikes. It is a special site where two forks of the Eno converge. Below is a gallery of images of the buildings and some of the things I've made from the materials gathered there. A big thank you to the Eno Association for allowing me to save and give new life to some of the beautiful old wood and artifacts![robo-gallery id="244"]
