Mark and Holly Grubb first painted a flag on their corn crib in 2003. "it was a way we could show our patriotism, especially after 9/11" said Mark. The Grubbs, who farm north of Ellsworth, re-painted the flag last week. "The fourth of July was a good incentive," said Mark. The flag is 24 feet wide and about 14 feet high.
