Yep, that was a killer. Before the internet, so few folks outside of the area remember. Everyone in Barneveld knows how old their house is. The reconstruction was a nice situation where FEMA provided supervision and materials, and the families worked in teams to build their own houses. It was a nice model, but required actual effort on the part of the recipients. Wouldn't go over as well, today, I suppose.
