Family, friends and other New Lenox residents came by Frank and Linda Pretzel’s house to see the 1840s barn that Frank had been preparing to move for nearly a year finally get there. 

The barn had been used as a home up until August 2017. The more Frank looked into it, the more he wanted to preserve it upon learning it was a historic barn.
