Jack S. writes: "Hate to be a spoilsport but I still think that is the remains of an old Jacobs wind generator minus the propeller and tail. It charged batteries to provide minimal electric power. One older person I knew had one just to charge his radio battery."
Hope M. of Perceptionphotography.biz writes that this is scheduled to be demolished in a controlled fire department burn.  She also sent a few more pictures of this barn and silo.



On 5/6/13 Lawrence writes "The 'mechanical device' is the remains of a windcharger. In the days before rural electrification was completed in the 1950's, many homes in rural areas did hot have electricity, and families relied on battery operated radios - today called 'farm sets' by vintage radio collectors. Beginning in the 1930's several manufacturers, including Zenith, marketed windchargers that were capable of powering a 32 volt radio. When utility power finally arrived, the utilities usually required the property owner to disable their windcharger (either by removing it - or more usually - by shooting it full of holes since they were high up and hard to reach)."

The spring house (and probably used as cold storage) for the old barn on the Dam Road near Perch River Dam, Jefferson County
Part of the right top side of this small building has now collapsed.  This spring house was part of the farm where one of the largest barns at one time in Jefferson County was situated, the barn was built between two hills.  For some pics of the ruins of this barn and links to old photos of it go to page 12 and also page 18.

On 5/3/13 Bill Boyer writes about state conservation work done 62 years ago.; "I worked for the state of New York conservation planting trees and fruit-bearing shrubs all over this farm while the dam was being built. Our crew was stationed at Perch Lake but worked where-ever it was needed. A fella named Rolly Parker was the boss and great to be with--lived in Cape Vincent, I believe. Had you gone to the main barn, behind the house and slightly to the left, you would have found a 'hidden room' area in the lowest portion, that leads straight back, away from the direction of the house. This was used during the prohibition years to make whiskey. Also was said, by Mr Parker that it was a hiding area for slaves heading north before they were freed. It was quite a large underground room---surely must be still visible.It's been 62yrs since I was there planting but knew the spring house as soon as I saw the pictures! Drank out of the spring many, many times. Water was so cold it made your cheeks ache. There was a tin cup with a finger handle always at the spring and everyone, for many years, drank out of the same container. Was no worry of germs back then! We planted berry shrubs all over the farm, many on the land around the barn and a lot behind it. Planted several thousand scotch pine seedlings. Used a Farmall M with three heavy cleats fastened to the outside of each rear wheel that would make a hole and hinge it open as it turned. We would put a seedling in each hole and hinge the sod back in place and step on it to 'firm' the root."

Steve writes "It's a shame this structure is now a pile of rocks, was pretty neat to see. I remember a rock in front with the date 1865? on it."

On 6/6/13 Mike writes "If it's the same barn I'm thinking of (just before you get to the cemetery that's dsguised by a woodline?), that barn came down in the last 2 or 3 years. Can't recall if the silo is also gone."
