The Alfrecha Farm on Middle Road owned by the Chaffee family of Rutland suffered a devastating fire in 1921 as detailed in the Rutland Herald article below.  The barn in the cover photo burnt in that fire.  The 2016 article below that from Sam's Good News provides some additional info on the farm and the fire.  See the Ridlon Farm entry in the Farms and Barns collection for photos of the barn that replaced the one lost in the 1921 fire.   Note that the milk house to the right of the barn in the cover photo is the back portion of the current home on that site.  The front part of the house was built in 1958 by All Ridlon Sr.
