CHAMPION, Ohio (WKBN) – A barn in Champion is being transformed into an Ohio History Barn.

Don and Helen Fenstermaker’s barn has been recognized as the eighth series of barns recognizing the legacy of the Packard automobile.

The Ohio History Barn Project is intended to showcase Ohio innovators, innovations and accomplishments that have impacted the state of Ohio and the nation.

When the barn on Center Street is done, it will feature the Packard crest, highlighting Packard Electric and the Packard Car.

The mural is a partnership between the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau, National Packard Museum, Trumbull County Historical Society and Ohio History Connection.

The work is funded through private donations.
