Jack S. writes: "Several years ago it was owned by a man named Abass and used for storage.  Part of it was used by Climax Mfg. While there with a Climax driver I was asked to look at a large bin and give a price to remove it was used to store dried milk which was made here."
Adam wonders "can anyone tell me how to get hold of this Abass or whoever owns the buildings now?"

Decrepit barn on Route 342 near Longways
There is an old house beside it, but so covered with brush I could not get a pic of it.  Update 9/2/07 - Both structures seem to have been demolished.  There was an old house that went with the barn but it was so surrounded by trees I never got a good photo of it.

Kris S. writes that this place "belonged to a man with a wooden leg we all knew as Crash Riley. He lived there with his wife until he passed quite a few years ago. He always crossed the street to go to Longways several times a day."
Marilyn M.M. writes "I remember this property very well & remember hearing about the last known residents of this property. However, the prior owners lived there many years & really worked very hard to maintain the farm & their livelihood. It seems as if Mr. R.A. also drove schoolbus to supplement their income. Mrs H.A., a very hardworking woman did a great deal of the farm work. In their later years they were blessed with a much-loved daughter. When she was still very young, her Mother (Mrs. H.A.) fell from a piled high haywagon & was killed.  Such a tragedy.  Their daughter must be around 50-60 years old now.  In tribute to her parents & all the other hard-working farmers of the 40's & 50's of Jefferson County, I had to share this little bit of history.  There are not many of us left to tell it & to see these overgrown piles of rubble is sad. Most had been well cared for buildings providing shelter, food, a haven of love & a source of learning the customs, values & mores of our community. Just one small piece in the quilt we call the United States of America."

Frink Farm, Salt Point Road (Route 66), near Sackets Harbor
This barn is very close to the edge of the road.  What appears to be a small building is across from this, but it was obscured by brush.

Randy Nier writes: "The farm in this picture was run by my grandfather (Howard Nier) for 24 yrs. Most of the time he had 40-60 head of milking cow. Mostly Holsteins. My entire family grew up on that farm. It was owned by David Frink. He used to own the little cute yellow home at the entrance of the Salmon Run Mall in Watertown. The farm just down the road, at Baggs Corners that burned, was owned and operated by The Grant Family. I was recently there last summer to visit family and had a chance to see the farm again. It brought back some great memories. I plan on buying land around that area when I retire and really would love to own the farm. I had a great time growing up there. Bob Bendwell is the caretaker of the farm now I believe. My grandfather later became the lawnskeeper of the Madison Barracks in Sackets Harbor before he passed on." & "My father Gary S. Nier is the second oldest son of my grandfather, Howard S. Nier. He knows everything about the farms history." and "I would love to hear back any comments on the farm. I would love to talk to the owners and possible find out if the building across the street from the barn would ever be for sale."
Terry C writes: "As I cruise the web looking for a lost past, one of my child hood I came across these photos and I remember well how alive northern N Y was back in the 50s. My family owned a small cabin out side Ellenville, we would go off to visit friends around Margaretville but drove all over the state. I was raised in part in upstate and when I saw this photo and the story written it brought tears to my eyes. To see such a place that once was full of life to be in such sad shape."
On 07/08/12 Howard S. Nier, Jr. writes "I am the son of (Howard S. Nier sr.) and as far as Gary Seymour knowing the history of the frink farm that my father ran all those years is false." and "I worked that farm with my father, nearly all those years he was there. There is 500 plus acres of land that goes with it and when my father ran it, he had all Holstein cows and about 250 acres of tillable land that we worked. David Frink was but one of the owners of the property, he had an older brother and sister, plus his mother back then, when we first moved onto the farm, David's older brother, Les Frink was the one who ran things until his death a few years later, then David took his place! My father had 60 to 80 head of cattle, between milking cows and young stock. It was hard work, but working side by side with my father all those years, was very rewarding and I would give my life to have those days back working with my, (Pa)!" 
On 07/18/12 Randy Nier writes "My father.....Gary Scott (Nier) Seymour WAS there helping run the FRINK FARM beside HIS FATHER Howard Nier Sr. as well as most of the Nier family. Uncle Jr (Howard Jr) was the 3rd youngest son of Howard Sr. Grandpa was an amazing man and was the reason our lives were So full!!! Farmlife and country living cant be replaced as far as I'm concerned!"  
On 09/22/12 Howard S. Nier Jr. writes "That's right, I am the third oldest son, my father had two son's from his first marriage, Ron + Wayne. When we first moved onto the farm, the road was just a one lane road, that was rarely ever traveled and we had a dog that would sleep on the road, because it was never traveled and if by chance, someone did come down it they would have to wait for the dog to get up and move, which he was hesitant about, that was funny, boy time's were sure good then!"
  On 10/1/13 Randy Nier Jr. writes "Sadly the frink farm has fallen down. broke my heart to see the barn is nothing more than a pile of wood now. Very sad the family has let this happen to such a wonderful place...:("
