Log Barns



These two barns may be among the only log barns left in Iowa. It is believed the large barn was built in 1868. Orville Nelson owned these primitive barns for years.

Every time I see an old barn or farm house like this I wonder if I sat there long enough, could I hear the stories from the history of it? As a writer I should really explore that! Thanks for the constant source of inspiration!
