The Mule Barn was renovated and used as a school. I found conflicting statements in the history: 1 place on the Small Town's site said it was a school for black children; the other said it was for white children. Following more remodeling, it became the municipal building and also housed some offices.
Sadly, the Mule Barn no longer exists. The building that houses the Post Office and a bank stands where the Mule Barn once did. The building stood in that spot from 1913 until 1961. The first city manager of the Small Town was quoted as saying that the building was built as strong as it was because "the mule was an important member of the construction organization."
