The economy of Brown County was based on farming, crafts, and tourism. Baumann’s portrait of the community that befriended him, The Hills O’ Brown, includes the blacksmith who shoed horses and repaired wagon wheels. “While the whole setup had a kind of Middle Age gloom about it, the large bellows blew cheer into it,” the artist wrote. “If you can see a ramshackle structure as something picturesque, this was it.”
