Hi Linda. This is the barn at our Malloch family farm…The barn was built by Dan Malloch my great grandfather in 1909. This is the first major repair ever done on the barn since my great grandfather had the barn built. Check out the thick stone walls. Blake is repairing the corner of the barn his great great grandfather had built. I love history. –Glenda Mahoney
Sunday- July 8, 2018-We are heading to the farm today to place a time capsule in the barn foundation. I wonder if it will be found in another 109 years. Glenda Mahoney
We each wrote a letter. Money. Crystals. Pictures. A newspaper. We are hoping it will be future Mallochs who open it. My sister Barb said whoever opens it will look at the pictures and say, “Omg look at their hair look at their clothes!”
