And the silence speaks of love

And the silence speaks of love
Bleed under mat

Artist: John Crittenden


The early 1900s saw the beginning of the settlement of Western Canada. During these years hundreds of thousands of immigrants chose this area of North America as their new home. Settlers came from all over the world to cross the prairies in search of a dream and freedom from the governments and tyrants of Europe and other areas. They brought their own methods of building homes and barns with them and created a unique history that can still be seen today if one wants to travel the back roads and take the time to look.

Many of these new immigrants choose to settle in the grasslands but some pushed on into western Alberta and the foothills. Western Canada is home to an amazing history of barn styles, some of which have their roots in Medieval times. - John Crittenden
