The love of Case IH machinery colors inspired the barn quilt for Kathy and Tom Gallitz. The quilt was a silent auction item that they purchased for a friend who suffered from colon cancer. Dan Meier, a friend of the Gallitzs, created the barn quilt. They bought the property on Hwy 18 in 1991, but the barn dates back to 1934. The original use for the barn was milking, but today it is used to house horses.
