CIRCLE LOGIC - The Anatomy of a Round Barn
{Round Barn Architecture Catalog}

{a collection from America's Forgotten Archives}

Time is what Round Barns are all about.

These ancient wood framed structures were built to last, and would have, but its master craftsmanship…
is no match for advanced age, benign neglect or the ravages of nature.

Patches of bright streams of light and howling gusts of wind cut through the cracks of our old wooden round barn.
On the outside, peeling faded white paint and missing shingles revealed its age.

We, the supporters of preserving barns – proudly call ourselves “barn huggers”… and we’re running out of time,
Can you imagine America without a barn on the landscape?

Our background…1995, when we moved to our farm, much to my delight, a round barn stands on our homestead. It was not in very good condition... We decided it would be a travesty if this barn collapsed on our watch, we couldn’t stand by & let it cave in.”

So, we became stewards of this Round Barn…Our 60 foot Round Barn is a very impressive structure dating to circa 1914.

That’s where the fascination began…
As each year passes, fewer and fewer of these magnificent structures survive,
we thought, wouldn’t it be grand idea...
IF… we shared these images & blueprints of them with the world?

Our Goal
To share our admiration of and fascination with these structures, and if perchance,
to whet ALL BARN LOVERS' appetite for a bit of the Round Barns history.
