The Hartley Barn is a historic barn located in the Bridgeport Historical Village in Bridgeport, Michigan. It was built in Kawkawlin between 1881 and 1885 by Henry Jones on a land grant signed by President Ulysses S. Grant. The farm passed to the Hartley family in the early 1900s and was used until the 1960s when the Bridgeport Players acquired the barn from Charles Hartley to use as a community theater and dance hall . The barn was moved to its current location in 1975 and restored. It is now maintained by the Bridgeport Historical Society and open to the public for tours and special events.
FYI: I will be giving a presentation at the Bridgeport Public Library on Wednesday May 3rd, at 6pm. Admission is free and if you live in the area I hope you are able to attend.
