Thanks! I believe there were some designs meant to ward off evil, but the history of the barn stars in this area was a way for the carpenter to put his signature to it.

Beautiful barn shot. I've heard that the star originated as an hex to protect the farm from bad things. This barn looks quite artistic. -kevin :)

Thanks Heidrun! This farm looks to be "semi-retired". No animals, but the fields are still being worked.
