  1. Shannon, where is this barn??? I don’t know how I’ve missed this one….how could I miss that Ostrich on the barn! My neighbor talks about how she invested in Ostriches at one time…I’ll have to ask her.

  2. FOUND THIS INFO ON A SITE OF LOCAL BARNS! East side of Kitchen Dick, between Highway 101 and Old Olympic

    Up until 2003 this was an Ostrich Farm (which explains the image on an ostrich on the front of the barn). It has since been a Bed and Breakfast, with horse boarding facilities. Another family from Seattle purchased it at the end of 2009.

    The barn was built in 1937 and used by Luther Jackson as a dairy farm through the 60s, when the Spoelstras bought it for their birds. It is listed on the Historical Barn Registry of the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.

  3. I have no idea how I’ve missed this barn! I live at the end of Kitchen Dick and have never noticed it! Not too shabby for a bed & breakfast, too. . .

  4. Pat, that is good information to have, thanks for sharing it! I would really like to see an Ostrich in person. My husband says “but they’ll attack you” lol. I know pretty much nothing about them. I’ll add that to my list to look up. I can’t imagine eating them, but that is just me.
    Kay, that is funny that you haven’t noticed it before considering where you live. I like when I discover something I hadn’t noticed before and then I think to myself HOW did I not notice that?
