Barn from Utah dairy farm moved

DRAPER, Utah — A white barn from once-rural Salt Lake County has been taken from its foundation and rolled away so it can be preserved.

DRAPER, Utah — A white barn from once-rural Salt Lake County has been taken from its foundation and rolled away so it can be preserved.

The barn is from the Day Dairy in Draper, south of Salt Lake City. The area used to be rural but has developed into a major population center, its streets lined with shopping centers and restaurants.

The 1920s barn is being taken to a city park off Pioneer Road, about one mile away from its old home.

The dairy farm moved to Payson four years ago. The property it once operated on was sold and the buildings auctioned off. The barn has been donated to the city.

Residents have given $20,000 for the “Save the Barn” campaign. In its new home the barn will be an education center with dairy farm displays. It also will serve as a community center for local events.
