The Once Majestic Barn west of Loyalton at the Genasci Ranch lay collapsed after major storms last December.

Clean up of the grand old structure was performed by Mark Tanner Construction out of  Truckee during the weekend of July 16-17.

The barn was featured in Sierra County Historical Society’s Barns of Sierra County in Sierra Valleyand states, “was built in 1909 on a cedar block foundation. It has milled timber with some mortise and tenon joints with wooden pegs. The stanchions have been removed and the barn is now being used for storing hay.”
