The Woodland Place Stock Farm has been a family farm since the early 1900s and while it no longer raises its prized shorthorn cattle, the farm still produces a commercial beef herd, wheat, sorghum, and with the restoration of the south barn into a sawmill and drying house - walnut and oak lumber. The owners successfully listed the property and the contributing structures on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Kansas Register of Historic Places.
Around 2015, the owners applied for a "Let's Get Started Grant" offered through the Kansas Barn Alliance and received the award! The grant allowed them to bring a professional onsite to provide a building assessment to begin their restoration journey. With the assessment in hand, the owners proceeded to apply for a Heritage Trust Fund Grant which partially funded the project. Through the two grants, the barn was able to undergo an entire restoration process that witnessed a new concrete floor for the sawmill, a new roof overbuild to protect the aesthetic integrity of the spaced sheathing boards viewed from the interior, as well as new Heritage shingles and a coat of bright red paint!
