A historic barn in the heart of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve is getting a much-needed facelift thanks to the help of a handful of college students and volunteers. Students participating in the University of Oregon’s Pacific Northwest Field School visited Ebey’s Landing last week to install a cedar shake roof on the Comstock Barn, which is located off Engle Road south of Coupeville. Shannon Sardell, director of the Pacific Northwest Field School, said the barn is a significant part of the reserve’s historic landscape and, until recently, was at risk for demolition.
