Currently the Bagg Bonanza Farm Historical Preservation Society is in the process of rebuilding the Mule Barn.
Based on many old photos, insurance drawings, and the original foundation, the new barn will be of the same dimensions: 36' wide, 128' long, and 37' high.
The original cupola's have been saved to be re-conditioned and installed on the new structure. These are currently on display at the farm.
The restored building will be used as an interpretive center, for concessions, have additional restrooms, meeting facilities, a theatrical stage area, as well as a site for special events, such as weddings.
The goal of the Society is to raise $250,000 for the reconstruction of the barn. Work began in 2003.
