Final Curtain For Barn II

After nearly four decades entertaining people with dinner theater, the Barn II near Goodfield has closed. The facility had been open since Halloween of 1975. Owner Mary Simon says an insurance company has denied a storm damage claim after wind went through the facility in August. A structural engineer says the former cattle barn is not repairable. And without insurance money, Simon says the Barn productions cannot afford to relocate to Morton.
