Inside the Thompson milk barn in Osbornville

Donald, Clinton and Herbert Thompson in their dairy barn with milk pails. Photograph by Leo Thompson. (Clinton was DeKalb historian Bryan Thompson’s father.) August 1956. Osbornville in Town of De Kalb, NY.

Listen to Bryan’s story of his childhood work of chasing cows out of the barn – and failing at it in front of his city cousins – by pressing play on the audio bar on the right. This story was recorded at a North Country at Work live storytelling event in Canton in July of 2018.
