1908

On Mother's Day we took my mom on a drive around the city of La Crosse, to places we hadn't been for years. This barn and silo is at the east end of Cass Street, which turns into Ebner Coulee Road and meanders up behind Granddad's Bluff. From this angle, you can barely see the sign that says '1908' at the top of the roof...this farmstead was established over a century ago! Below is a back view of the barn from the next street over where you can better see how it is nestled at the bottom of the bluff.

What a beautiful farm. I love barns and you can't beat an old, red one.

That's quite a lovely barn, charming in fact! Check out Tricia's "Barn Charm" meme at her Poplar Bluff Daily Photo blog in Missiouri!

Thanks, Leif. I visited Tricia's 'Barn Charm' and posted my barn image from today!

This barn is really impressive, but the stone silo beside it is awesome. A lot of work went into building it. Such a nice shot.
