It’s astonishing what a touch of paint can do. Over the course of two days, professionals coated the horse barn’s fan cowls, lightning rods and weathervanes with fresh layers of silver and black paint.

Built in 1948 to stable horses, the horse barn is now used primarily for storage and work areas. Still, the iconic horse-shaped weather vanes recall the building’s equine past. It was quite possibly the first time they were painted in the building’s 70-year history.
