The Workshop - It All Started with a New Tractor

Margaret Magnus

The idea of building of a new Workshop started on January 13, 2007, at a work party in honor of Agnes Baron’s 100th birthday. Agnes Baron, born on January 17, 1907,  was a co-founder of Meher Mount who cared for the property for Avatar Meher Baba from 1946 until her death in 1994. 

Whenever individuals are doing the manual labor that has been one of the hallmarks of Meher Mount - pulling weeds, trimming trees, cutting tall grasses by hand, and hauling trash and debris - the discussion always turns to how to make the tasks easier.

Her response was that the corner was down that rugged canyon, but she could not specify the corner exactly. Meher Baba “looked displeased,” Agnes said.

Trailer Removal Opens Up the Views

Margaret Magnus

After the October 14, 1985, New Life Fire at Meher Mount destroyed all the buildings, new living quarters were needed for Agnes Baron, the then caretaker. As an interim solution, a trailer was brought on the property for her residence.

However, with time, pests and use, the trailer deteriorated. In September 2007, the trailer was removed before it became a safety hazard at a cost of $4,000.
