Brunson Barn

The Brunson Barn is on Thoreson Road about one mile west of M-22 where Thorson Road turns south. This structure is all that remains of the Joseph and Margaret Brunson farm. Mrs. Brunson was the daughter of Thomas Kelderhouse. The gambrel roofed barn is sited in a small field with a gentle wooded slope that rises to the north.
