This month’s History Mystery features this barn. We obtained this picture of a barn located somewhere in Madera County while working on a Historical Preservation project with the Madera County Library. We are looking for the location of the barn, the name of the ranch where it was located, who built it, is it still standing or any other information to help us identify it.

We are sorry to report that no comments were received about the arrastra near Thornberry Road in Oakhurst. If anyone has any information about it please contact the Fresno Flats Museum.
The participating History Organizations want to thank the mountain communities for the support we have received during the last year. In many cases we have had comments regarding the monthly History Mystery that have helped to solve the mysteries involved.
If you have a photo that has some mystery to it, and you think it would have a wide appeal to the community, feel free to contact your local organization. We are always open to finding new documents, artifacts, and photos of the mountain area, even if there is no mystery. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
