“The only way to save the granary was this way — finding a new site and moving it there,” Drury said. “If they had taken the granary apart, they never would have been able to put it back together.” The crib construction inside the granary includes wood that has been interwoven, which created a very solid and stable structure, Drury said. “No one could have put this back together,” he said. “I am very happy to be a part of this (project) to save the granary.”
