THIMBY Thursday - The History In My Backyard - Dresden Barn

This is the Dresden Mule Barn, situated along the I & M Canal, near Minooka, Grundy County, Illinois.  It is one of the canal's last remaining original structures.  The barns were used as a resting and changing place for the mule teams pulling the canal boats.




The barn is located across the road from the Dresden Cemetery.
