THE LIGHTS OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON

WELCOME TO KOSIERS CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

Not far from my home, is a once plain ole’ Diary Farm that is owned by Samuel Kosier, and his Wife.  Back about 30 yrs. ago, Sam started decorating his home and the Dairy Barn with Christmas lights.  Just adding a few strings of lights here and there to light the farm up for the Holiday Season.  Then as each year went by, he added more and more lights making it more noticeable to passers by who began to notice.  More & more lights were added over the years, and the farm started to back up traffic on the country road.  He started charging people to come in a see all the Christmas Lights that he had added.  Back then he charged $3.00 just to walk around and look.  Now, more than 30 yrs. later it has grown to this that I will show you.  He no longer has his Dairy Cows, as you would imagine!  The Image above shows the main Barn all decorated up for the Season with 3 HO Train Sets and model homes.

This is looking down towards the Lake that is in front of the Farmhouse.  The lights on the Lake keep time with special music and make a colorful display.

In closing, this is what the one time Dairy Farm look like from a distance.  Since the Farm is located on a back country 2 lane road, I had to pull off the road, get out of my car with tripod and camera in hand and shoot this Image.  People come from all over the county to see this amazing place that has been here for as long as I can remember.  I think that each year, Sam add’s more and more, even though it might be only a little bit here and there.  The people never seem to stop enjoying what they see.  The cars line up night after night in long lines to bring the kids in all of us to see this terrific display.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy this.
