In 1899 August Hoegemeyer’s father bought a farm in Lyons, NE. Fifteen years later, August built a barn for use as a granary to store feed for his livestock. The land remained in the family for four generations until a family friend, Donald Timm, purchased it in 1985. Donald and his son Paul continue to farm the land today, and until its declining days the barn functioned as a machine shop that Donald rented to a friend until he outgrew the space. Our sincere thanks go to Dean Hoegemeyer and Donald and Paul Timm for sharing their story with us.
For Barnwood Trays purposes, this barn has been retired.
