Spring at Holz Farm

Holz Farm was one of the early farms of Eagan. Now it's owned by the City of Eagan and used as a living museum for community festivals, etc. See other charming barns here.

  1. This reminds me of the Red Barn on Washington Island, WI, Leif. Does this one have dances, musical events, poetry readings, etc. too?

  2. One of my friends got married in a former barn wedding venue! I like that they don't tear it down and make use of it. Great shot :D

  7. Hey Leif, I just read your comment on my blog & see that you're in New Orleans... how's the flooding there? Is it bad or were they able to divert it by opening the gates? I've been trying to watch it on the news, but it's hard to find anything after the initial coverage & surprise has worn off, for the media, anyway! =)

    Lieber Leif und liebe Familie Hagen. Vielen lieben Dank für die wunderbare Postkarte. Ich war wirklich sehr überrascht. Auch ich bin glücklich und froh über CDP so viele nette, freundliche und liebe Menschen kennengelernt zu haben, hoffentlich werden es noch mehr. Ich hoffe auch, den einen oder anderen mal persönlich, entweder in Stuttgart oder Eagan oder irgendwo anders, kennenzulernen. Fotografieren ist schon eine wunderbare Sache, die man immer mehr perfektionieren kann und bei der man sehr schön experimentieren kann. Lieber Leif und Familie, viele liebe Grüße aus Stuttgart von Steffen und Familie. Macht's gut!!!!

  18. Very cool but why most barns are red? There must be a reason, right?
