Barn Again

Europe has cathedrals, Egypt has the pyramids, but the barn is the monument of the Kansas prairies. Barns told the story of Kansas farm life when the Smithsonian exhibition Barn Again! visited eight Kansas towns in 1999 and 2000: Lindsborg, Colby, Fredonia, Arkansas City, Winfield, Highland, Hiawatha, and Elkhart. Over 25,000 people visited Barn Again! Celebrating an American Icon on its Kansas tour.
