Your great wiki about round barns reminded me of this one near La Porte, Indiana. This unusual nine-sided barn was built by horse and cattle breeder Marion Ridgeway in 1882. Ridgeway had the barn built so that each of the nine stalls had its own door and window. This barn was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I also enjoyed this wiki. I enjoy taking rides in the country and looking at old farms and barns. Below are 2 round barns located in Ceder Lake, IN in Lake County, just south of where I live. I've included the directions to the house and barn along with the picture. The house is also built in a circular design.
