On N Railroad St. Franklin G Ludington operated a
feedmill, it was sold to W.C. Richards, and was last
operated by H & H Feed Mill. The building still stands
today and is owned by Hadwin Fuller III. The barn that
stood across the road was a part of the feedmill
operations. When the barn came down a few years back,
Ken Henderson was able to rescue some of the lumber
before it was burned.
Ken Henderson crafted a 32 inch double tiered bench from
this late 1800ís barn wood and has donated it to the
PTHS for a raffle. Members are selling tickets: $1 each
or 6 for $5. The bench is shown at the Parish Farmer's
Markets with chances available on Saturdays July
12 - Aug. 9 The drawing will take place in the late
afternoon at the
Parish Olde Home Days on August 9.
