Wisconsin Barns - Book

The Wisconsin Barns book is a fascinating and pictoral journey into rural Wisconsin. On a two-year quest to document Wisconsin’s iconic barns, writer and historian Nancy Schumm-Burgess and photographer and journalist Ernest J. Schweit set out to explore a way of life defined by family, a connection to the land, ingenuity, and hard work.

In the process, Schumm-Burgess digs up fascinating details on the backgrounds of the structures, including a rare log barn dating to the 1840s, a barn that once served as a stagecoach stop, and another designed by African American architect Algie Shivers. Schweit’s photographs capture the storied structures in all seasons—from modest mid-1800s barns to round and octagonal structures to grand, arch-roofed edifices.

Organized by region, the Wisconsin Barns book discusses Wisconsin’s unique barn styles and details the backgrounds of many of the structures. Makes a perfect gift or memento.
