The Maple Leaf Farm, W.A. Bornemann, Prop. RR2, Hilbert, WI. Painted from a photo taken over 75 years ago. Barns are not just buildings, they offer us a view into the past of the hard labor to make a rural living profitable. A tribute to the many barns that are disappearing from the landscape every year. You can almost tell the nationality of the people who built the barns years ago if you study them.
