AgedBarn.com was started in January of 2007 with the goal of documenting old barns in the Wisconsin area with the use of black & white film. 

Taking b&w photos of old barns has been a hobby of mine for a quit some time now.  These barns helped settle this state and country.  Blood and sweet went into these barns.  They were a way of life and a necessity to our growth.  Unfortunately with today's shrinking farming community,  these barns are being torn down and forgotten about.  How many times have you driven past an old barn ruin and never gave it a thought.  There is so much history there and I'm trying to document it and never forget what they did for us.   Most of the barns on this web site are from my area of Campbellsport.   I venture out to Sheboygan, Fon du Lac, and Washington counties for these barns.  My goals someday is to travel all over the state taking photos of the varieties of old barns.

About Myself:

My name is Bill Krueger and I am 27 years old.  I currently work at Times Printing in Random Lake.
If you'd like to know more about me and see some of my other work, please visit SpoonClan.com

My Gear:

My gear that I use for the photos on this site are a Minolta Maxxum 7000 SLR camera.  This camera actually came from my Grandma and is very old.  I'd like to upgrade to a newer camera in the next year.

I also use a Canon PowerShot S3 IS 6.0 mega pixel camera now.   Just so much easier getting my pictures on the site.

Web Site Components:

I actually found a theme of a barn at Freewebtemplates.com.  However I did not like its coding or some of its images.  So I created mine after that template.  I ended up using only three images from it, the background and the buttons.  Everything else I did myself.   The barn in the upper logo is actually one just down the road from me on the corner of Highway SS and Highway 45.

The Gallery was done with Simple Picture Gallery Manager v 1.4.7.  Of course it was slightly modified for this site.

I've never actually have been a farmer, but I have lived on two farms while I was younger.  I've always loved old barns and this is the result!
