A very unique structure, known as the Barnaal Building, was once a prime destination for farmers from many miles around to get their grain cleaned.
In about 2010, the Barnaal Barn was discovered by Richard Emch and Denny Kurtzbein while scouting out an old tractor to buy from Les Barnaal of Sacred Heart. Today it is filled from top to bottom with old grain cleaning equipment and machinery dating back to the late 1800s. One of the oldest items stored there is a late 1800s grain drill that came out of Iowa. A Blue Grass stripper arrived from the Dakota’s. It was made to strip seeds off the Blue Grass. Many of the other items such as a fanning mill are from the early 1900s.
