Kennamer's Cross.

This Cross was constructed from old barn wood by Steve Kennamer.  The wood was from an old barn that belonged to a distant family relative.  Steve tore down the barn to rebuild it on his property.  This wood was stored in the rebuilt barn, just waiting to become the Cross it is today.

This photo shows the inside front wall of building.

The building of the Trading Post was completed in five years.  The owner, Steve Kennamer, along with his son, Chris, have spent hundreds of hours, painstakingly adding detail after detail to make it truly a work of art.

Steve's dad, Denton Kennamer, cut all of the cedar over a period of three summers to be used in the store.  A portable saw mill was used to cut the cedar.  He, along with other family members have had a hand in it, whether it was staining and sealing the wood, hanging photographs, organizing the antique pieces, or cleaning - It was a family effort.
