Vernon County, Wisconsin has the highest concentration of round barns in the world.
Through roadside interviews and sensuous pictorial vignettes, The Round Barns of Vernon County explores these unusual structures, their enigmatic African-American builder, Algie Shivers, and his unique racially integrated community, the Cheyenne Valley.
Historians and descendants alike describe Shivers and his anomalous early 20th century community with a common idea: people all got along and helped each other survive.
