PLYMOUTH â€”Â Bryan Naylor, of Plymouth, thinks that his property at 12498 Maple Road would be the perfect location for weddings, parties, and other events. He would like to build a barn on the property and rent it out to interested groups.
â€śI basically just want to put up a finished barn out there and give something to our community that we donâ€™t really have around here â€” a place to hold an event in a rural setting,â€ť said Naylor in an interview Friday. â€śItâ€™s my understanding that there is a need for this type of thing.â€ť
He added that the endeavor may boost local economy.
