Last winter, many Westporters — including “06880” — worried that the demolition of the North Avenue barn near the corner of Long Lots meant that one more town icon had bitten the dust.
Rick Benson didn’t let that happen.
Carefully and lovingly, the local builder is recreating the old barn. It looks the same — if not better — on the outside. Inside, there are plenty of improvements.
Thanks, Rick, for proving that not every old structure must give way to a bigger, more bloated one.
