When I began researching round barns of Indiana, I had absolutely no idea what I'd find. A native Hoosier, I knew there were historical studies on barns, but I"m a "city girl" and had never pursued the issue. Lo and behold, there are hundreds of resources available on the history of barns, and now I'm ordering some photos to hang in my library. Some are absolutely beautiful photographs.
Listed below are a smattering of interesting resources you might want to explore!
