The Town of Chase recently nominated their historic Stone Barn to be on America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places list for 2009. " Pulaski News - Stone Barn nominated for ‘most endangered’

The Stone Barn, which was built in 1903, is significant because it is indeed one of the last surviving barns of its kind. It represents what this nation and region was built from; farms and agriculture. It also represents Wisconsin’s geology; the stones used to build this barn originated from the Canadian Shield. They were pushed and tumbled here by massive glaciers during three known Ice Ages over the last 70,000 years, carving out much of Wisconsin’s landscape.
