Photo of the Day: Oct. 16, 2016 – Kroupa Road Barn

Help Support Old Mission Gazette, a reader-supported newspaper covering the Old Mission Peninsula

Here’s a picturesque old Kroupa barn, on Kroupa Road, of course. To get there, head north on Center Road, take a left on Kroupa Road, and go a couple miles to where the road takes a sharp left. This barn is on the left there.

I’m trying to remember which Kroupa lived in the house on the corner – if someone knows, tell us in the comments below.

Oh, and to anyone who hasn’t lived here very long, you pronounce “Kroupa” with a long “o.” People tend to pronounce it like “Krupa.”
