DescriptionThis contemporary photograph of the Bagg Bonanza Farm near Mooreton North Dakota shows farm implements in the foreground and several of the buildings in the background. From left to right the buildings can be identified as the storage shed, granary, and sheep barn. The storage shed was moved to the site in the 1920's and features a rectangular plan, gable roof with wood shingles, and shiplap siding. The granary has a saltbox-type roof with wood shingles and shiplap siding. It was left on the site from the farm previously owned by Mr. Lenzen before Bagg's acquisition of land. The sheep barn has a full monitor roof with wood shingles, shiplap siding, machinery door and gable vents on east and west sides. This was moved to the site in the 1920's. The implements appear to be a cultivator and a hay rake. A blue sky offsets the brown of the fall grass in the foreground.
