why are barns Red?

Meade County, South Dakota

Red barns?
 Red paint was the cheapest you could buy, there is an awful lot of square footage of barn siding to cover! It became fashionable in the late 1800s because it contrasted so nicely with your beautiful white painted farmhouse. It showcased your prosperity.
