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.
