The Turner Barn Remodeled
Photographic print in an album. View of the barn on the Turner Farm remodeled into the "South Syracuse Motel" after Wayne O. and Marion Turner went out of the farming/produce business. Lawn chairs are in front of the motel and two people, a man and woman sit in them. On the back of the print is handwritten in different colored ink,"Our South Syracuse Motel built by us in the 1950's LaFayette, N.Y./Don't know if you ever saw this before or not./I will send you a better picture/Did I send you the log house in Port Jarvis?" This photograph is part of an album of the Wayne O. and Marion Turner farm which was in operation from 1945-1956 at RD 1, LaFayette, New York. It was first a chicken farm and then a vegetable truck farm. The Turner's sold produce at the Syracuse Regional Market during that time. After the farm stopped operating, the barn was re-modeled into The Syracuse Motel and part of the farm was sold to the Jewish Federation of Syracuse and made into "Camp Fren-Le."
