A “Long” Barn

-A A +A
c. 1875. Take US 6, southeast of Iowa City; turn left (east) one block southeast of Scott Blvd. intersection; travel .7 miles, barn is on south side of road

This is a long board-and-batten basilica-plan barn. There is a gable over its entrance at the center of one of the side aisles. A degree of elegance is added by a window with pediment (accompanied on each side by rectangular louvered vents) placed within each of the high “nave” gables.
