The barn at the Community Farm would be an ideal location for this spire to sit. We will be installing a new roof soon and we can build a coupola for the Spire to sit on. Please consider Bidding on it and donating the spire to the farm. This is a win win for all!! A little money for HIB and a piece of local History for the community farm.
