An old German

The Brandtjen Farm is now a residential neighborhood off Pilot Knob Road and 170th south of Eagan. The barn was renovated into a clubhouse. Read the long, important farm's history here. See other Barn Charm meme contributors here.

  15. Excellent renovation although we hate to see farms used for anything other than farming. Great shots.
