    Adaptive Reuse/Renovation of Historical Barn for Office/Marketing Center

This office and marketing center began life as a horse barn built in 1937 by an Italian immigrant who was the premier stonemason in the area north of Fort Worth. Rather than raze the dilapidated structure on the Fossil Creek property, Woodbine preserved and renovated it into the Fossil Creek Information Center.

Lesson Learned - Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, as is opportunity. Old, abandoned barns can house more than horses and hay.
