Barn Party at the Nashold's


Left to right Russ Steve Nashold, Tom Wiencsh, Scott McIntosh and Jim Creeron


Went to the Nashold's annual barn part this past weekend. Had a great time. Got to see some folks I hadn't seen in years. Been too long I will say. But there were tall tales and good fellowship all in one big beer party. Good times!


For those of you I met in my life after I left Madison, this was the group of first real friends I had in High School. All successful in life and good solid people too. Glad to catch up with them all this past weekend.


Steve Nashold and his father Ray. And my old 1998 Honda Valkyrie.

The Nashold 20-sided Barn is a round barn in Fountain Prairie, Wisconsin. The barn was built in 1911, at which time round barns were a popular agricultural innovation. The barn has a 40-foot (12 m) silo at its center; the central silo created a more efficient layout for feeding cows. An earthen ramp to the barn's hayloft was also used to store milk, an innovation which was uncommon in similar barns. The Nashold barn is one of the few surviving round barns from its era, making it an important part of Wisconsin's agricultural history.[2] On February 11, 1988, the barn was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
