On This Day: Herr raises barn


Daniel Herr raised a new barn, reported the Lancaster Daily Intelligencer On This Day in 1880. Herr, a former Lancaster County treasurer, lost his Pequea barn some time ago to a fire. Former sheriff H. N. Breneman and Mr. John Ingram supervised approximately 100 men in the raising.
