Stand-alone library at Green Bend Farm

What’s now a free-standing building at Green Bend Farm was once the ice house at a nearby Christian camp. The building was saved from demolition, moved to the property in the early 1970s and repurposed as a library.

What’s now a free-standing building on the property was once the ice house at a nearby Christian camp. The building was saved from demolition, moved to Green Bend Farm in the early 1970s, and repurposed as a library. "Today you hear so much about sustainability; the materials from this building would have ended up in a landfill if Joseph hadn't moved it to the property," says Patricia. "He was very resourceful and really had a unique way of thinking for his time."
