The Smiley Barn

The Smiley Barn sits on land originally settled in 1839.  Anton Kaderabek purchased the 200-acre holding, known as Villa Pine Farm, in 1897. He added the barn to house a herd of Brown Swiss dairy cattle.  In the early 1960’s, Highway I-94 was built through the farm, splitting it into two pieces and leading to the sell-off of most of the land to developer Ted Morey in 1969.

The iconic smiley faces were created in the mid 1970’s.  The faces were constructed of plywood and affixed to the unpainted, weathered gray surfaces on the East and West ends of the barn.  The barn was converted to an indoor mall occupied by several independent businesses, including a cheese & sausage shop, a photography studio, a stained glass shop and a candy store.  In 1982, Dick Smith’s Live Bait, Tackle & Taxidermy became a new tenant. Dick Smith convincingly suggested painting the barn yellow and it grew into a treasured landmark.

Toys, games, candy and more await you!
