BUCK TOWNSHIP -- It was an old-fashioned barn raising in one part of Luzerne County Sunday.

Brothers Adam and Grant Kerrick are restoring a barn built in 1875 that burned to the ground in 1959.

The brothers started building the barn, located in historic Stoddartsville near Blakeslee, from the ground up using period wood and equipment, even the original hardware.

The Kerrick brothers said they have been working for over a year to complete the restoration.
