History of the Barn

fusion-barnGerman farmers were known for their fine, sturdy, stone barns. Today there are only a few left. The Brew Pub and Red Lantern Chinese are good examples of the barns. Years ago the early German settlers put up their stone barns before they replaced their log cabins with their stone homes.

Red Lantern Chinese has slits in the stone walls. These are used to ventilate the barn. One of these barns was used in the 1700’s as slave quarters.

James Chung and Jimmy Du have worked together in the past and have been running Red Lantern at Restaurant Village together since 2013.
