BARNS OF SUMMERS COUNTY-westVirginiaHeritage An extract from the book for your enjoymefit By Phyllis Campbell Whitley WORRELL BARN ON SHUMATE ROAD FOREST HILL DISTRICT The barn sits majestically in the field on Shumate Road in the Forest Hill District. Kelly and Garnette (Young) Ferguson were living at this farm in the 1940's when Kelly built the barn. The two large double doors on both ends of the side of the barn could indicate Mr. Ferguson had some large machinery to store. The attached structure was the place where the animals were vaccinated. In 1968 Douglas and Drema (Hanson) Worrell purchased the barn and in 2009 it went to their son and his wife, Ronnie and Renee (Smith) Worrell. Ronnie Worrell said he has many memories from the years he has lived at the farm. He said, "When we were young we would help Dad get the cattle in the stalls. We would put a rope halter on each cow, tie it to a post in the stall and then vaccinate it. Then we would do another one. Dad la er built a shed with a holding chute inside so we could do all the vaccinating much quicker. It made everything a lot easier to do." Ronnie said, "We spent a lot of time digging bantam chickens out of the loft after we had filled the it with hay. The chickens loved to make nests and hatch up in the loft. Over the years, my brothers and I also spent lots of hot summer days throwing thousands of square bales up into the loft. Many of our friends in the area would come by and help during haying time.
