Aggie Barn Under The Stars
Photograph - Photo
In 1980, Mr. Thagard Kirkpatrick (Texas A&M Class of 24) painted his barn Maroon to express his love for his Alma Mater. The barn was located between Waco and College Station, Texas.
Over time, this barn has become a landmark that most Aggies are familiar with as they drive down from North Texas to Aggieland. In 2006, the barn was scheduled for demolition due to a highway expansion project. Joe Swinnea (Texas A&M Class of 85) purchased the barn from the Kilpatrick family and moved it to their property to continue the legacy of the Aggie Barn.
Today, the Swinneas maintain the barn in order to preserve the legacy of Mr. Kilpatrick and bring joy to other Aggies.
