Old Barns

The old Heidemann barn outside Kimberly now holds groundskeeping equipment for the Rockledge Estates subdivision.

STEPHEN REISS, TIMES-NEWS

Built: about 1920

Location: 3810 N. 3800 E. (west side of road), Kimberly

Size: about 57 feet long, 36 feet wide, 36 feet tall

Its past: Ingwall Fonley farmed the ground at Idaho 50 and 3800 East. The family lived on the northwest corner of the intersection and built the livestock barn near the house.

The farm, home and barn eventually landed in the hands of Everett Alldritt, who sold it to his sister, Aileen, and her husband, Robert Heidemann.

The Heidemanns farmed the land and rented out the house and barn.

Its status: Not long ago, the Heidemann property was subdivided into residential lots. The Rock Creek Fire Department burned down the old farmhouse, but the barn still stands.

“They thought someone would want to buy a lot with the barn on it,” Aileen Heidemann said.

Now the barn holds groundskeeping equipment for the Rockledge Estates subdivision.
