Barn at Africa
This old barn and silo sit at an intersection on Highway O, across from Africa. For those of you who didn't know that Africa was located in Barron County, WI, that may come as a surprise. But back in the 1940s and 1950s, when the landscape was dotted with country schools, Africa was among them. It was probably similar to the old country school I attended as a first and second grader (amazing how I survived all these years without kindergarten, isn't it!). Since that time, during the great consolidation of c. 1956 when the country schools were merged with the town schools, the small country schools and acre of land they sat on were sold off to private individuals. The school I had attended was moved a couple miles from its location onto a farm, to be used as a granary. Africa stayed right where it was, and was remodeled into living quarters. There it sits to this day. And of course, I always think of this barn as 'the barn at Africa.'
