New  Old Barn

New Old Barn

The Rice County Fair and the Rice County Historical Society worked together to add a replica barn from the late 1800's. This barn was built next to the Old Log home to show fair goers and different school aged kids during the year what it was like to farm back then. We want to thank all the many volunteers that help make this possible.
