Owners Of Iconic Barn Treasure Its History, Hope To See It Saved - North Fork, NY - The cost to repair the iconic barn is daunting, but its owners treasure its history and hope to find a way to save it for new generations.

Lange, 27, said he left the corporate world and came back to run the family business, hearing the siren song of the place where his roots run deep.The problem, too, Lange said, is that the barn is not 100 percent usable for his family's needs, with only about half utilized for storage.It was originally used for mules and corn storage, he said; mules have not been used for farming for decades, Lange said.That same $50,000 might be better used to build a new, fully functional barn, Lange said.
