Wisconsin Resident Ditches ‘Brett Favre Barn’ Tribute, Dedicates Building to New Packers Hero Aaron Rodgers


Feb 9, 2011

A local Wisconsin barn got a well-needed makeover last week. And this wasn’t just any makeover. The barn’s upgrade symbolized former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre’s fallen legacy in Wisconsin, at least according to the barn’s owner, Patti Schroeder of Fremont.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Schroeder decided her acclaimed “Favre Barn” was in need of a change after current Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ heroic performance in Super Bowl XLV. She changed the landmark’s name to “Mr. Rodgers’ Neighborhood” over the weekend.     

To spell out the message on the side of her barn, Schroeder utilizes unused pieces of advertising material taken from a Citgo station that she co-owns. In its former days, after Favre was traded to the New York Jets, the barn read “4 Ever in Our [Heart].” When Favre came out of retirement to play for the Minnesota Vikings, Schroeder made some more alterations.

“The week he became a Viking I got up there with a box cutter and broke the heart,” she said.

Currently, the barn reads “#12 is 3X #4.”
