Chicken Coop No. 3 Must Be Demolished

Chicken Coop No. 3, one of the historic outbuildings in the farm complex at Maudslay State Park, is beyond repair and must be demolished. The 97 year old building is in terrible shape. Shingles are flaking off, and the roof is caved-in.

Rob Kovacs, the park supervisor, said park officials would have preferred to have been able to maintain the coop building. But with limited resources and more than 40 structures needing attention at the 480-acre park, there just isn't enough manpower to keep up every building. Every building on the old Mosley Dairy Farm is on the Massachusetts Historical Commission's Inventory of Historic and Archaeological Assets.
