Cuthbert-- One amateur historian is trying to revive a piece of Cuthbert history. 

This is the Old Mule Barn in downtown Cuthbert. The barn, built sometime around 1850, was a busy mule and horse trading site for one hundred years.

Co-Owner David Sullivan is trying to restore the dilapidated building with the help of the Historic Chattahoocee Commission, "We made an application for a little $2,500 dollar grant to level these floors and redo the dirt floor of the barn and get it redistributed and shaped up we felt first thing to do. With their funds being cut doesn't look like we will be able to do it this year."

The Old Mule Barn is listed as one of six threatened landmarks by the historic commission. The barn still retains its original heart pine and post and beam construction. It's used in the summers for a seasonal farmer's market.
