Walnut Bottom Barn Destroyed

On July 22, 1932 in the evening hours a storm went through the area. Lightning struck a barn in Walnut Bottom owned by Joseph Kline causing its complete destruction along with its contents. Firemen responded promptly and were able to save several out buildings that began to burn because of the close proximity to the barn. The farm was situated along the Yellow Breeches creek providing an ample supply of water. Damages were estimated at several thousand dollars. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
