Good Fences - Aniwa, Wisconsin

If those walls could talk.  I'm thinking they still actually do...spooky...






Aniwa, Wisconsin has a population of 260.  Aniwa is typical of any small town in the country: post office, bar (or two, this is Wiscsonsin...) and a feed mill.   An interesting fact, Aniwa had a world record holding resident.  Mr. Behn was the oldest lion and tiger tamer in the world.  Behn's Game Farm was a jewel and one of those unexpected things we are famous for here Wiscosnin.   I wrote a post about him years ago, you can read it here:  http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2011/03/lions-tigers-and-bears-oh-my-thanks-for.html

Back to the fence - cast iron.  Abandoned now, but in it's day I bet a real beauty.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

It does look like it's straight out of an old horror movie but the fence is lovely & unique!

Well that old house has seen better days for sure. The wrought iron fence has a nice pattern to it.
