Brown 22 Duck Barn (1).jpg

(2014)

Dutra-Cowing compound | Former Shankpainter Children’s Zoo.

This small shed is, I believe, the last structural survivor of the zoo that Ruth (Watson) Dutra once operated on the property. A love of animals runs through the generations of this family. When I visited in 2014, the shed was being used to shelter a bunch of ducklings, making it easy to conjure the zoo days.
