c. 1900. Iowa 92, .5 miles east of US 169

This large 70 foot by 80 foot grade barn with a gabled roof has a spectacular interior that rises to a height of 72 feet, its roof carried on a forest of braced-beam trusses. Close to the barn is a tiny one-and-a-half-story stone farmhouse that dates from 1862.
