On day 2, there is a hausbarn in Manning.  Manning is a small community with a German heritage.  They disassembled this barn in Germany, and reassembled it in Manning.  In the part of Germany where a lot of their ancestors were from, a hausbarn was kind of common.  It contained living quarters for the family, plus housing for farm animals and equipment.  It’s open for tours.

By the way, that’s Freda Dammann, my high school English teacher in traditional clothing with inspection route riders in front of the hausbarn in the photo below.  Everyone stop by and tell her that Ann sent you, okay?  This could be great!
