“American Star” was chosen because Max is a Vietnam Veteran and it reminded them of the flag. They moved to the farm in 1994. The barn was built around 1938 but half of the barn burned down so the front was refaced.
This barn and barn quilt are featured as the July photo in the Barn Quilts 2019 Calendar. The photo was taken by Lisa Jenkins.
Neighbor Judy Halverson painted the barn quilt for Max and Kathy as her husband, Art, grew up on the farm.
