Round Barn Arcadia Oklahoma

 The Round Barn was built in 1898 and is quite the sight to see along Route 66.

 This is the upper level where loose hay was stored. Now it is a venue for weddings and dances. I loved it and danced and whirled around. It was one of the most wonderful rooms I have been inside in many days.

 The round barn in 1940 looked bad and yet there was no money for restoration. This is a photo I took of an old photo.
 The ceiling of the upper level. The roof is freestanding and looks like the inside of a round basket. The roof is 49 feet tall.

 Inside the lower level horses were housed and feed and supplies were stored.
