Nichols, IA(Zone 5a)

We came from here:

I started with a barn that had a face and the thread has grown to include country scenes. All pictures are welcome. We really enjoy seeing what you have.

Graffiti Barn was around when my Mom was young. What happened is unexcuseable.


Grandview, Iowa - Investigators say they suspect arson in an early morning fire that destroyed a Louisa County landmark today.

The Grandview Fire Department was called at 4:34 a.m. today to the fire at Iowa Highway 92 and County Road X43. When they arrived, Chief Mitch Schweitzer said, large flames were engulfing an old barn known locally known as the Graffiti Barn.

Additional firefighters and tankers from departments in Letts and Columbus Junction were immediately requested for assistance.

Fire crews knocked down the flames, but the barn was completely destroyed, Schweitzer said.

No injuries were reported and property loss estimates have not yet been determined.

The exact cause of the fire is still unknown, but arson is suspected, Schweitzer said.

The fire remains under investigation. Anyone with information should contact the Louisa County Sheriff's Office at 319-523-4371.
