The villages of Amana are unified with a unique post and board fence system. They enhance the landscape and accent its historic character.  The fences were in the interior areas, along the blocks, and around the huge community kitchen gardens.  Pre 1932 photos show the fences unpainted and used to keep livestock and wild animals from straying into the kitchen gardens.  The fences are now used to add character, unify, and decorate the streets.  They are allowed to age naturally.  They do enhance the look of main street as you enter town
