This square was selected because they liked the pattern and it was very colorful. The owner’s Mother quilted and this was one of her favorites.
The barn is a “pin and beam” barn, constructed in the late 1800s. Wooden pegs were used in the construction, and the beams are 10 ft. X 10ft., and 40 ft. and 60 ft. – wooden floor. A new standing seam roof was added in 1912. You can still see the old cedar shakes under the roof. The barn is painted and kept in good repair. In the 1970s, the family raised pigs from birth to 40 lbs. at which time they were sold, and also from birth to market, having at times 30 sows plus 600 head of pigs in the barn and hog house, which was built in the 1950s. The family sold all the hogs in 1982.
