About:

I have passed this barn numerous times near my home. I thought about the people who had lived there, whose dream it was to work that land, make a home and raise a family. I thought about how that had maybe come true, but is now fading away

Thank you to the Kansas Humanities Council.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibits, 100 Years of Agriculture; Past, Present, and Future, and supported by the Kansas Humanities Council, a non-profit cultural organization dedicated to promoting humanities programs across Kansas.
