Amish Move Barn By Hand

Now this is some team work!

“Around 150 Amish men from the Kalona area help to carry one of four pieces of a large barn Friday morning along Highway 22 east of Kalona. The men moved the barn by foot to the homestead of Paul T. Miller, who purchased the structure at an auction from Randy Billups of Kalona. It took the group about four hours to finish the task, and they drew the attention of numerous passersby. “I’ve never seen anything like this. This is something from ‘Ripley’s Believe it or Not, ‘” Dick Schlatter of Kalona remarked. Press-Citizen/Matthew Holst”

One of the coolest ideas I’ve ever heard of!

“Photographer Wilma Hurskainen and her three sisters spent a lot of time together growing up, vacationing with their parents, and being silly. She had the idea to do it all over again, 15 years later and turned the resulting photographs into a book called¬†Growth. Take a look at some of the intricately set and posed photos they wound up shooting together.”
