Heritage barn

October 10th, 2023 — There is a heritage barn with out buildings in Burgoyne Bay Park, Salt Spring Island, that has been waiting for years to be restored. It’s made from logs and rough cut timbers and the names of the animals who once sheltered in it could still be found over the stalls. Until recently it was in pristine condition, not a mark on it. A few days ago we walked by during a hike and found it covered in graffiti. It will be impossible to restore.
