c. 1860. 4 miles west of Muscatine city limits on Iowa 22

Set far back from the road among trees is this large three-and-a-half-story brick barn with a gable roof. Windows with segmental arches occur at the ground level; above are diamond-shaped brick screen windows that have been arranged to form a fascinating pattern on each of the building's facades. A tall, square wood cupola surmounts the center of the gable roof.
