Being featured on the cover of Our Wisconsin
Photo by Carol Toepke
The barn in the cover photo is from the Hauser Superior View Farm of Bayfield, WI. It is the only Sears Mail Order Barn left in the State of Wisconsin and is one of only seven left in the United States. Built of western fir in the early 1920’s, it was shipped by train from out west, hauled up the hill from Bayfield by horse drawn wagons, and assembled by local carpenters. The barn originally cost $896.00. It originally housed purebred Golden Gurnsey cows until the 1950’s. Hauser’s Superior View Farm resides 600’ above lake level about two and a half miles from Lake Superior.
