Mos recent update:  11 June 2013



A slightly modified version of the original file,
without additions made since mid 2011 (see below)
,
that includes the text, full captions,
and the photographs, albeit reduced in size,
    is now available on the Michigan Barns,
 Preservation Network web site:

http://www.mibarn.net/MacCoAlbum/Mac%20County%20Barns.htm


 
This site is, for the most part, an "Album of  Photographs"
    in which the originally included 135 barns and "extras" are
 
shown at their originally published sizes.
tohere
It also includes photographs and captions
for
three barns that have been recorded
since the original report was prepared --
Mo7, Ne12 and Ne13;
captioned photos that update
Br2 and Ma3, an "extra"
and
a barn-shaped and so-named structure
 that has never functioned as a farm barn,
Br13,  which is an additional "extra".

Acknowledgments to the County residents
who allowed access to
their properties and
 supplied information
about these barns are
also given here.

Acknowledgments

The preparation of an album about old barns in Mackinac county was suggested by Robert Bruce Brown, my son-in-law. It was subsequently promoted by Rick and Kurt Dietrich and Krista Brown, my wife's(d) and my “kids,” who have a much higher opinion of my photography than I do. Bob's suggestion and our kids' promoting it were, I feel sure, based on their knowing that I was just about to finish a project and needed another one "to keep me out of mischief."

Each of my "kids" helped in several ways as I photographed the barns, sought information about them, and was preparing this album: Each of them gave me suggestions and discussed diverse aspects of my photographs and the information I collected. Kurt and Krista also drove for me on some of my trips to find and photograph the structures and contact people who gave me information to include in the captions. Bob Brown, my son-in-law, helped me with contacts and supplied valuable information about the area, its people, etc. that only one who has lived in this area virtually all of his life could do. 
Kurt and Rick read and critiqued the complete report.

Charlie Brown, an attorney in St. Ignace, drove me to view and photograph three of the barns in and near St. Ignace and supplied data about them.  Buck Sharrow took me by horse-drawn carriage (carriage and horses courtesy of Mike Young of Frankenmuth, Michigan) to see the many horse stables on Mackinac Island and supplied basic information about each of them.  Prentiss M. ("Moey") Brown, Jr., an attorney in St. Ignace, served as a valuable source of historical information about the area in and around St. Ignace. Mary Hill, and others at the Historical Museum of the Les Cheneaux Historical Association in Cedarville and Linnea Ault and others of the Engadine Hisotircal Society Museum in Engadine gave me information and also the names of people from whom I could get additional information about the barns in their areas.  Linnea Ault also checked the original draft of the Garfield Township captions.

David Ginsburg, Research Librarian Emeritus, Central Michigan University aided me by making searches for literature dealing with barns, especially those in Michigan, that contains information that might otherwise have escaped my early barn-related observations within the county. He also checked the References given in the full report to make sure that each is in a form that will facilitate readers that may want also to review those publications. Gina Kemp, Director, and Barbara Zimmerman, Assistant Director, of the St. Ignace Public Library, obtained several publications via interlibrary loan. Gina also supplied one important, rather rare booklet from her personal library. Vera Wiltse, 4-H Youth Agent, Michigan State University Extension (ret.), was ever ready and willing to give professional advice.

The following people supplied information about one or more the the barns included: Donald Ault, Linda Belonga, Gary Bigelow, Judy Bishop, Ed Brockman, Barbara Brown, Elmer & Ruth Brown, Frank Butkovich, Carilon Hopperstead Carr, Curtis Cheesman, Dan & Amy Christensen, Betty Clark, Chuck Collip, Nancy & Joe Cornwell, Peter Crystal, Debra Dailey, Frank Daily, Raymond & Ruth Derusha, Amelia Duberville, Carol Duncan, Andy Dunikowski, Bob Edwards, Verna Engel, Vern Erskine, Alice Feigel, Dee Fenske, Ervin Flatt, Wayne Flatt, Ethel Freeman, Fred Freeman, Nancy Fulton, Roger & Tamara Gady, George & Irene Gage, Gerry Glenn, Violet ("Marie") Gorman, Dale Greenwald, Jack Gribbell, James & Faye Gribbell, Clinton & Barbara Groover, Chandler Hadley, Herbert Hahn, Julia Halonen, Carol Hamel, Michelle Hanson, Gary Heckman, Gayle Herron, Anthony Hines, Jeffery Hoag, Robert Holland, Dick Huskey, Rosemary Irwin, Conrad Izzard, Roger Kempf, William Ketola, Mark Kinjorski, Mike & Rae Klobucher, Teri Kniss, Martin Kopinski, Caryn Kovar, Wayne & Georgianna Kuebler, Alan & Charles Lamoreaux, Clarlyn Ledy, Judy Legault, Sharon Legault, Marian Lesatz, Bob Lindley, Louise Lowetz, Kirt Mahar, Charlie and Louis Markstrom, John Matchinski, Jessica Maze, Kathy McCabe, Jennifer McGraw, Jonathan Miller, Leighton Miller, Levi Miller, Richard Miller, Tate Miller, Wendell Miller, Russel Morris, Kathy Mullholland, Russ Nelson, Tim Nelson, Mike Newton, Kellie Nightlinger, Charles & Kathy Nye, James & Cully Ocko, Ed Olson, Gunnar Olson, Bill Orr, John Ozanich, Herman Patzer, Ray & Carol Patterson, Wes Peckta, Richard Pershinske, Jon Plomer, Peter Polisse, Peter & Sallee Poole, Freda Price, Karen Reed, Bambi Robinson, Ervin Rose, Jim Rourke, Betty Sadler, Sue Salter, Herb Sawyer, Esther Schaum, Edward Schmitt, Violet Schroeder, Elsie Sellers, Martin Sherlund, Rudy Sherlund, Harold Shoemaker, Edward Simon,Sharon Smith, Wayne Steiner, Harry Stephenson, Fred & Marilyn Strickland, Chriss Stutzman, Gladys Tamlyn, Mary Kay Tamlyn, Susan Thomas, Jerry & Kim Thompson, Charlie Vallier, Mark Vonderwerth, Jim Vosper, William Wagner, Craig Weatherby, Jake Weiss, Rick Weiss, Paul Williams, Angela & Jeff Wollos, Ken & Debbie Zellar, Melissa Zellar, and Todd Zellar.

The lower photograph, added in early July, 2012 -- i.e., it has been added since the original report was put on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site.  It shows the condition of this barn, from the other side, after a Late June rain and wind storm.  Rosemary Irwin and Louise Lowetz, grand-daughter and daughter, respectively, of William Luepnitz, who built the barn in 1923, witnessed the event.  They said that the top part of the gambrel roof sagged -- i.e., "looked like a hammock" -- and soon thereafter there was a loud noise as the side, which is the one opposite from their viewpoint, collapsed.  Since it's collapse, the debris has been cleared away.

No photograph or information about this "barn" was included in the original report, a version of which is available on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site.  This structure was not included in the original compilation because of the date it was erected and it may now warrant including here;  this is so because it does not, and may never, function as a farm barn.  Also, so far as I have been able to determine, before its construction, its location and the surrounding acreage were not called the "red barn farm" -- Note the content of its "name plate" -- see inset --  which is on the building's  highway-facing end.  In any case, the structure, which has two levels in its interior, was built  in 2012 for Thomas Sposito of St. Ignace.  Currently, the only nearby acreage that is being worked is used for vegitable gardens by residents of St. Ignace and Brevort Lake.

            The composite:    Upper-  left, a windlass mechanism that consists of a central "reel," with a diameter of ~4½ feet, mounted on a horizontal piece that extends across the open area, ~14 ft., between the eastern and western lofts of this barn near their southern ends -- i.e., farthest from the door where a hay wagon could enter the area;  right,
close-up that shows the notches that are on one of the outside rims, but not the other, of the "reel."     Lower,  two sections of  the floor, which consist largely of cobbles and small boulders.  Some of these rocks are glacially transported fieldstones;  others are fragments of rubble derived from fairly nearby bedrock.
------------------------
[The windlass mechanism warrants further attention.  The following conjectures and tentative hypothesis about it are based on cursory observations plus a few measurements.  I have found no one who knew how it was actually used. 
                    
This windlass was, I suspect, used, along with a rope or cable, either to hoist something up or to pull something
                            into this part of the barn.  My first guess, on the basis of its location and the general setup within the barn,
                            is that it may have been used to
pull loaded hay wagons into the barn far enough to facilitate the transfer
                            of the hay from the wagons into the loft(s).  This possible use is based on my not finding any evidence
                            indicating that a north-south pulley and track setup was ever in the barn plus my thinking that the rock floor
                            of the barn would have been difficult -- indeed dangerous -- for the horses to negotiate.  In addition, if shod
                            and they had been so used,
sparks from the horses' shoes as they hit the stones could have ignited the hay. 
                            ALSO, because of the general setup within the barn, had horses been so used,
the farthest that they could have
                           
pulled the wagon into the barn would have still required extra and difficult work by the farmhands to transfer
                            the hay from the wagons into the lofts, especially near their southern ends. And,
the alternative of having the
                            horses back a loaded hay wagon into this barn seems highly unlikely, indeed
incredible.  ----  This hypothesis
                            relating to the use of the mechanism does not include one major component -- i.e., any suggestion of a possible

                           
power source to rotate the "reel."  Several alternatives seem well within the realm of possibilities.
                      In any case, as the apparatus now stands it seems that it cannot currently be used for anything.  This is so because
                            the horizontal piece upon which the reel is mounted appears to be mounted in a stationary position  on the beams
                            at its ends, AND the reel seems to be mounted on the horizontal piece so that it will not move except when the
                            beam is rotated.   Possibly these relationships are late additions made to prevent its continued use or misuse.
               
 
                                                   COMMENTS FROM ANYONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT THE USE OF THIS APPARATUS
                                                                             WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED and added below.

                       Comment #1. Emmett Mason, Professor emeritus, Central Michigan University,
directed my attention to a
                       photograph of a windlass of similar size and setting --  on the internet
(see More Treasures ...).  Apparently it
                       was used only as a hoist.

                      
Comment #2. Craig Gibson, retired geologist in Sydney, Australia has added that he thinks the notches on the
                       device indicates that the use was made so one person could operate it -- i.e., that whatever was moved could
                       by using it could be done in stages and so manipulated by a single person.

                       Added information: Mason's comment led me to make a search  - "windlass barn" - of the internet. Photographs
                       of two noteworthy windlasses within barns can be seen on the following web sites:
                               http://www.flickr.com/photos/grants_images/2414935578/     [similar to Engadine one;  no location given.]

                               http://maine.craigslist.org/grd/2497625963.html   [less like Engadine one;  location -- Edgecomb, ME;
                        described as follows:  "Antique windlass removed from old post & beam barn. Originally used to hoist wagons
                        or animals from main barn floor. Main shaft is about 12' long and large wheel is about 64" dia. ...]

                       
Comment #2. Andrew Koester (p.c.s, January & March, 2013) describes a "functioning windlass wagon lift" that
                        is in his hay barn, built about 1865, at Cayuga (near Hamilton), Ontario, Canada.  He also sent photographs of the
                        windlass that indicate it closely resembles the one shown here. He elaborates the features of his windlass, noting
                        that it has "the large wheel in the middle of a spool that . . . has 4 pulleys, on each side, whose ropes would align
                        with the wagon [to be lifted.  Also, that] another small rope would be attached to the horse[s, and as they] walked
                        out of the barn, the wagon would lift into the loft." In addition, he notes that once unloaded, a cog setup that is present
                        would be pulled, thus releasing the main wheel so the wagon would return to floor level.  Koester notes that his
                        description was given to him by a person who is a "farmer ... familiar with such a mechanism."  He also notes that he
                        has tried the windlass and "it functions well." 
                               Koester's description, plus the fact that he notes that the floor of his barn is wood, "so no sparks could ignite
                        from the horse's shoes,' leads me to wonder if the windlass in this Garfield Township barn was used to lift hay
                        wagons to the loft level where the hay would have been relatively easy to unload into the loft.  It also will lead me
                        to revisit this barn to see if there is any evidence that a wooden floor once was present in the area into which the
                        wagons would have been drawn.

       The lower photograph was taken and added in early July, 2012 -- i.e., it has been added since the original report was put on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site.   It  shows the current appearance of the site where the former barn was located.  Unlike many of these "Barn no more" locations, the wood from this one has been removed.  Perhaps the other debris will also be removed and covered with soil or otherwise modified to enhance the appearance of the site so that it blends in with or becomes a highlight within the surrounding area.

Mo7. (east of East Martin Lake Rd. (formerly, Cremer Rd.); NE¼ sec.9, T.40N.-R.4W.)
No photograph or information about this barn was included in the original report that is available on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site. 
          This barn was not seen during the original field study.   It is known to have once housed a few cattle, a horse or two, hay in its mow, and a sundry of other, for the most part small, pieces of equipment  -- e.g., the hay saw held by Harold Kriesche, the current owner of the barn (See the middle photo of the composite.). 
           When the barn was built is not known:  A photograph of a once associated farmhouse taken while it was being built is dated 1936.  Whether the barn was built before, at about the same time as, or after that house was built is not known for sure.  Lisa Massey, granddaughter of the Anthony Cremer, the elder, who was the owner of the property when that house was built, however, believes that the barn was there before the house was built.  If so, the barn was very likely built by or for Ambrose Corp, the father of Benjamin and Laurence Corp from whom the elder Cremer purchased the property.  Ambrose Corp's second wife and the mother of Benjamin and Laurence, was, the daughter of the 
Martin, for whom Martin Lake, which borders the property, was named.
          The "lean-to" structure to the left of the barn in the main photograph appears to have built at the same time as the barn.  Its original log sides and corrugated metal roof, both of which appear to be original, are the same as those of the main part of the barn.  The short boards, now attached to the outside of this "lean-to," many of which have or are now falling off, were added by Anthony Cremer, the younger.   Contrariwise, the "lean-to" that is to the right of the main barn in the main photograph post-dates the original structure.  This is known because it was not present when early photographs were taken of the barn plus the other "lean-to" 
          This main barn is the only one that I have seen within Mackinac County (or elsewhere!) that is sided by logs with their lengths positioned vertically.  I wonder if this orientation was used to copy and perhaps even gain some of the advantages that are attributed to the numerous barns with its sides and ends consisting of vertical lumber.  In any case, the logs of this barn range between ~3½ to 8 inches in diameter.  Chinking between the logs consists of relatively small branches -- see the left photo of the composite.  With a few exceptions, both the logs and branches are white cedar, probably from nearby.  Most, perhaps all, of the logs and most of the branches appear to have been debarked before they were incorporated into the structure. .  The side of the main barn that is shown in the lower right photo of the composite, shows, among other things, the haymow-level door. The water-color painting of the barn (original - ~ 8 ½ x 11 inches), by an unknown artist, dates to the early 2000s
.  Notice that the recently added, unweathered, light-colored log and the paired 6 x 6 inches header (i.e., lintel) that is above the old Dutch door (See main photograph), are not shown in the water-color painting

           Right (in composite, a short piece of log atop a "shelf" that is attached to a board that, in turn, is attached to the a vertical wooden boards of the barn for . . .  - I hesitate even to guess what its function may have been.
                           The feature shown on the right side of the composite led me to see if a lady who was "brought up" on the farm might
              know what it had as a function.  She indicated that she had no recollection of the feature.  Photographs of the barn that are
              in the Engadine Historical Museum substantiate her remarks -- i.e., the feature was not there when the photographs were taken. 
              If the dates when the photographs were taken and  when the barn was last painted can be found, the time period during which
              this feature was added will be known.  But, will even that information give a clue to the function of this feature?
               
           For the record, the guesses as to its function that were made by the readers include the following: 
 
                                    1) A perch of some kind, probably for a pet raven.
                                     2) A place -- i.e., beneath the log --  for a visitor who found noone at home to leave a note.  (Considering the shelf's
                                                height this suggested use would indicate that visitors who knew of this function were rather tall.)

                                     3) A family joke of some sort whose meaning has been lost in time.
 
                                    4) Before the barn had electricity a lamp (kerosene?) was put on that little platform;  later, when they got elec-
                                               tricity, they no longer needed the lamp;  then, one day, just on a whim, somebody put the stump up there.
                                     5) For woodpeckers?
 
                                    6) A conversation starter for visitors, or anyone else, who sees it.
               
           And, one reader asked me:  "When you first looked at ... [it], were you 'stumped'?"
               
           Perhaps someone who knows will see this and tell us what it really was meant to be.  If so, I will add that to this caption.

No photograph or information about this barn was included in the original report that is available on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site. 
          This barn was overlooked despite the fact that it can be seen from Rte. 2.  A dairy and hay barn, it was built in the late 1920s or early 1930s for Michael Ozanich.  Loose hay was stored from floor to roof in one part of the barn and in a mow above the "dairy  parlor."  Stanchions are still within that latter part of the  barn.
[The above information is from Brent Geske, the current owner.]

No photograph or information about this barn was included in the original report that is available on the Michigan Barns Preservation Network web site. 
          This barn, which has a rather remote location, was not seen during the original study.   Relatively small,  it is said to have been built for Herb Burton in the mid-1970s and to have been used as a cattle barn.  It includes what was a hay mow in its upper level and had stanchions for three to five milch cows.

             The following sketch map shows the locations of the barns shown by photographs in this album.  It is given, along with the list of locations, because the numbers of the photographs, and thus of the locations, do not have any logical relationship to the roads and geography.  They are, instead, in the order in which the photographs were taken, and that depended upon such things such as light conditions and traffic.  It is hoped that the map will aid anyone going through the area who might want to correlate their travel plans and routes they take to see the photographed barns.

     NOTE:  A black and white photograph and information about each of the following barns is in Pickford..., 2004.  The photos shown in this album provide a different view, taken in 2011, of each of these barns.  The numbers following the MaP- prefix indicate the order in which these photographs were taken, which also provides a good order to view the barns.  The information in parentheses at the end of each barn location corresponds to the number and page where information about the barn is in the Pickford ... (2004) publication.  It seems noteworthy that five additional barns, no longer present, are also shown in the Mackinac County section recorded in  Pickford ... (ibid.)
