Remember When

This round barn, circa 1970, in Johnson Township was built by Charles Young in 1913, 1917 or 1922. It was 62 feet in diameter and had a central silo. In Indiana, between 1874 and 1936, 152 true circle round barns were built – 77 of those were still in existence in 1993. Other configurations in Indiana included barns with 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14 and 16 sides.
