Frosty Morning #3

Horseshoe Bay Farms in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin was originally built in the 1920s by the Frank Murphy family with a vision of becoming a grand golf resort. Only problem was nobody came, so the Murphy’s turned to farming instead. And for more than 60 years Horseshoe Bay Farms performed marvelously as a dairy farm and orchard. The dock at the nearby Frank Murphy County Park was originally built to ship the farm’s abundant milk and fruit to a nearby rail center to its final destination.

Within the last ten years, under new ownership, the completion of a troon-style golf course and residential cottages have fulfilled the original vision for the property along the bluffs of Door County.

I stopped by on a typical frosty winter day and caught a photo of the majestic old barn and the bluff behind it.
