This is my parents' farm. I grew up here! Barn has been fixed up, house torn down and new house built where granary was. Corn crib is gone but shed close to road, garage, tractor shed, and farrowing house are still there. Lots more trees too.

How cool to see my parents place in this article! The barn is truly amazing! The farm looks much nicer now but what a cool picture! So much history!

It was a great place to raise a family and now the grandchildren enjoy coming out to stay. Over the years we've had so many people stop to take pictures. On a hot summer day, when the three girls were younger, a man stopped to take pictures and wanted to see the hay loft and cupola, as he was writing a book on round barns. So the girls and I showed him the inside and around the outside of the barn He took the cutest picture of the girls on a ladder leading up to the hay loft. Approximately 10 to 12 years later our oldest daughter go to college at Moorhead State. And who do you suppose was one of her professors? The man who stopped by many years earlier. It's a small world after all.

We live there also and have very fond memories of a swing across the Hay Mow , was always told the round barns are round because that way there is no room for the Devil the corner you..
