My love of round barns started when I was in college. I had a very serious photography hobby and would take long drives in upstate NY looking for old barns to photograph.
It was in the days before digital cameras, so I now have big binders with pages filled of slides of countryside and barns.
Round barns are hard to find as they were not built that frequently after the 1920’s. The one that have been restored to their original state are amazing.
My favorite one….This round former cattle barn in Illinois was built in 1918 and restored in the 1990’s . Owner Bill Nolan restored the central silo, cedar shingled roof and four dormers.
Can you imagine what a beautiful and interesting house this could be?
