Historical society seeks signatures to save barn


The Woodbury Heritage Society is circulating a petition asking the mayor and city council to preserve the historic Miller Barn for at least 48 months.
The society said four years would give members time to raise $60,000 to reroof and reside the barn, located at 11500 Valley Crossing Road.
The petition will be available at woodburyheritage.org after Feb. 1. For details, call WHS president Wayne Schilling at 651-436-4063 or email Wayneoschi@gmail.com or Bill Schrankler at 651-738-1836, bschrankler@comcast.net.
Schilling said the society “envisions the Miller Barn as an interpretive space of early and large farm and city equipment from our past. The barn is also the iconic structure in the Valley Creek Open Space.”
