RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- It's 150 years old but it's the latest addition to a construction project south of Hollister. It's a barn taken apart and being put back together by the Amish workers.
The old barn was found by Bass Pro Shops owner Johnny Morris and his wife, Jeanie. It comes from Latrobe, Pa., which is legendary golfer Arnold Palmer's home town, and is being called Arnie's Barn.
Morris had been looking for just such a barn for the Top of the Rock Golf Course near Branson for several years. He decided this particular barn would be perfect, and Arnold Palmer himself even got involved. The barn was hauled in pieces on seven tractor trailers to the Ozarks, where it will have a magnificent view of Table Rock Lake.
Morris hired a crew of Amish men from the Seymour area to take the barn down piece by piece, number those pieces, and put them all back together.
