Barns were originally painted red in the 1700s because farmers had to find a cheap way to protect the wood and keep barns warm. They mixed on-hand ingredients of red iron oxide, lime and skimmed-milk, which created a rusty red color...and forever forging a nostalgic hue of country living.
The historic town of Warsaw, New York goes all the way back to 1803 when Elizur Webster bought 3,000 acres of land from the Holland Land Company. Industries ranging from agriculture to manufacturing grew the economy. But from 1881-1889, Warsaw was the primary producer of salt for the United States and eventually became the headquarters of Morton Salt Company. After World War II, the town turned back to agriculture for income with dairy farming and maple syrup production as main revenue sources.
