Each year the country loses more and more antiquated timber frame barns and the significant history they contain. The "barn" has evolved over the years and currently uses modern designs and computer controlled equipment in its design, but back in the 19th century it was a tradesman who created the angles and wood cuts necessary to construct a timber framed barn which was then assembled using wooden pegs instead of modern bolts. This barn, constructed in 1898 on a rubble stone foundation, was built to last the test of time on a working farm in St. Charles IL. It stood tall and proud until this year (2010) when a tornado lifted the barn 6 inches off the rubble stone foundation and then slammed it back to earth where it then fell onto itself. The tornado then picked up what was left and strew it over a 1000 ft debris field as it departed, leaving what was once the main focus of the farm just a pile of broken and twisted lumber, yet a home not more than 300 feet away was unharmed.
This writing instrument is made from that proud 1898 Barn.
