Why does the new addition to the Blue Ball Dairy Barn have such a modern appearance?
The design of the renovated Blue Ball Dairy Barn generated several comments at the May 6, 2002 public workshop. Some members of the public objected to the modern appearance of the addition to the barn, which was shown as a contemporary two-story glass structure with a barrel vault roof. While the New Castle County Historic Review Board approved the design of the new addition, some members expressed reservations about the form of the roof. Therefore, DNREC is looking at alternative roof designs that respond to these comments and concerns.
