Artist's Description

The early settlers determined to settle this rugged environment were the hardworking European immigrants of Germans, Scandinavians, and Czechoslovakians. The stone posts were utilized in the area because they were the material at hand on the prairie, and when the prairie fires swept across the country, the stone fences were still standing. The outcroppings of limestone rock have been used so extensively for fence posts that the posts have become an identifying feature of the landscape and are considered scenic attractions. Important to the development and prosperity of this area, these stone fence posts transformed the open range to productive farmland.

Depicted here is a limestone corner post with barbed wire. This post illustrates the typical method of reinforcing corner posts as well as how barbed wire was attached to the posts.
