THE BOOK: HISTORIC BARNS OF OHIO. Dr. Kroeger met the owners and heard their stories, learned about early Ohio history, and put almost all of his barn paintings into fundraisers for nonprofits. And, in the summer of 2019, the Arcadia Publishing, an American company also known as The History Press, contacted him about writing a book. It features paintings and essays about an old barn in each of Ohio’s 88 counties. Over 60 paintings are in color. After nearly two years of preparation, the book was released in March, 2021.
