These photos were taken from an album belonging to members of the Brennon and Schwartz family. Some of them lived on Hwy 16 North of Brandon. The pictures were not labeled but we felt they were very cool.
Notice the chickens in front of the hay rack.

On the internet it says that wooden silos were being built in the 1870s.
This silo may have been built when the homestead was filed.

The Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC) was a work relief program that gave millions of young men employment on environmental projects during the Great Depression. Considered by many to be one of the most successful of Roosevelt's New Deal programs. The CCC planted more than three billion trees and constructed trails and shelters in more that 800 parks nationwide during its nine years of existence. The CCC helped to shape the modern nation and state park systems we enjoy today. There is a great deal of information on these camps on the internet. Can you identify any of the men in these photos?
