Apple Park: Drone flyby of the Glendenning Barn (video)

Matthew Roberts’ latest offers closer looks at the Apple visitors center, the Steve Jobs theater and a 101-year-old redwood barn.

The barn, constructed in 1916, takes its name from Robert Glendenning, who settled in the Santa Clara Valley in 1850. According to the Mercury News:

To protect the structure during construction, Apple carefully dismembered the barn, numbering it piece by piece — every plank, nail and crossbeam — so it can be rebuilt just as it was, says Donna Austin, president of the Cupertino Historical Society. The company has even stockpiled redwood salvaged from an old grove in case any damaged planks need to be replaced.
