Field Trips

Below find information for upcoming club field trips in 2024.





May 4, 2024

Bruns Barn

Directions:  Drive south on Hiway 88, passing the stateline into California.  Approximately 3/4 of a mile past the stateline is a right turn on to Fredericksburg Road.  Take this right turn and proceed west to a "T" intersection with Foothill Road.  You will see the barn to your right but turn left onto Foothill Rd. and park on the right shoulder in front of the cemetery.  We will assemble there and walk the short distance to the barn.  This is one of the smaller barns that we have visited and is still used today for vehicle storage, etc.  The barn and the old house next to it were built around the turn of the other century.  Hopefully, Bruce Bruns will be there to give us some historical information.
