Off-Topic- Wisconsin Barns

Wisconsin is known the world over as America’s Dairyland. The landscape, littered with a subtle reminder of her history. The era of the family farm may have eclipsed, but the skeletons still remain. Casting a shadow over the unkempt fields and weathered implements, the derelict remains of barns still stand tall.

Barns serve as a touch stone to the glory of our once thriving agrarian ancestry. Their unique architecture and warm weathered coats whisper a silent story. It only takes a short drive from the most metropolitan of locales to discover the remnants of Wisconsin’s past.
