What is Barnacopia?

Barnacopia is the dream come true for Gary & Judy Bocker of Polo, IL.  They started building the peg-built structure in November, 2011 and opened for their grandson’s wedding reception on June 1, 2013.  The building features three levels of unique antique tractors, cars & much more.  (The ’53 Ford on the 2nd level is the first car Gary drove at 12 years old – pre-license era!).
