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.

This is lovely inside!
I got lost in reading about the farms history (well, actually, am still reading. it is very interesting even though I know nothing of the area or the people.)

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous job modernizing the land, yet preserving history. It's beautiful!

Reminds me of the Cat Who books and Jim Qwilleran's converted apple barn he lives in!

What a fabulous barn...need to remember to come back and read the history later. May not get to that till next time around.

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