Brothers Paul and Hank Barnes – 87 and 95 years old respectively – grew up on a 1,000-acre farm in Warm Springs, Georgia that has been in their family since 1832.

Paul’s grandson, Clifford, brought the brothers to the StoryCorps Atlanta booth to learn more about the workings of the family farm and what Christmas was like for them in this bygone era.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps Booth.
