I am so sorry to hear that the barn was razed. Before it was Marie Dressler's, it was part of the estate belonging to my Great Grandfather Arthur E. Mann, who owned the Mann and Sanborn Shoe Company and manufactured shoes in Windsor, hiring inmates of the local prison to work in the factory. The house burned down many years ago, and only the barn was left. Very Sad!
