Dutch Barn Preservation Society

Dedicated to the Study and Preservation
of New World Dutch Barns


March 2008 Board Meeting was held at the Canal Street Station in Duanesburg, NY. We met in a restoration of a 1800's General Store and sat around an old pot-belly stove. Owner Joe Merli gave a demonstration of making rubber-tire wagon wheels in his machine shop where he makes replicas of vendors' wagons and carts and restores antique Oldsmobiles and one large locomotive engine that will become an ice cream parlor on site.
