East Amana Rustic Barn


Iowa's top destination location are the Amana Colonies. Formerly a collective of agricultural operations, today it is a series of small villages that hold on to the old look and charm, deliver great German food and local beer, produce famous furniture and wool items, and offer several antique stores. Here in East Amana is this old dairy or horse barn. The structure is quite large but is still in use. It is one of the few area barns that hasn't installed a new metal roof like so many have in the past 15 years. Come see it when you visit Main Amana for Oktoberfest in a few weeks (Sept. 30 - Oct. 2.) Bring your thirst too. Know that.
