Midland Conservation District purchases Tomlinson barn

September 7, 2019by ncdea

MICHIGAN, Midland CD – After some shaky times, the Midland Conservation District and the historic Tomlinson barn, are on solid ground.

The barn and district also have history together, said Midland Conservation District Manager Karen Thurlow. The conservation district took ownership of the Tomlinson Family barn and about 5 acres, which was part of the Midland County’s Pinecrest Farm on Aug. 24, just over two years after Midland County Commissioners voted to have it torn down in June 2017.

When news of the county’s decision to tear down the barn came out, Thurlow was determined to save it. There were other county residents who felt the same way and Thurlow began contacting township supervisors, county commissioners, local foundations and organizations to seek support for saving it.

“I was the squeaky wheel,” Thurlow said. “No one knew we wanted to use it, so going public with my quest made it happen.”
