HONORING ORA ANDERSON: Ora E. Anderson (1911-2006) was Co-Founder of the Dairy Barn Arts Center and played many roles throughout his life including: artist, author, journalist, nature conservationist, devoted father, and community leader. He was known for his wood carving in which he created over 1,000 bird carvings. He and his wife Harriet Jacob Anderson spearheaded the movement to save the Dairy Barn from demolition in 1977 and are directly responsible for laying the ground work for what the Barn has grown to become today. Ora Anderson past away in 2004 and continues to be a legacy for years to come. In 2014, the Dairy Barn Arts Center developed a plan to build an addition, rebrick the parking lot and to develop a nature trail to honor Ora Anderson. Due to his dedication to saving the Dairy Barn, his love of birds, land and animal conservation, the Board of the Dairy Barn Arts Center decided to honor him by developing a nature trail in his name on the 32 acres of woods behind the barn.
