Ryan Round Barn


 Ryan Round Barn, Illinois 

"The Ryan Round Barn is nestled in the side of a knoll in Johnson Sauk Trail State Park. Dr. Lawrence Ryan, a renowned brain surgeon, built the barn in the early 1900s for his Black Angus cattle. This utilitarian structure included a central silo, granaries and a waste disposal system."

What a beauty, don't ya think? So gorgeous. I love that they included it in the state park there in Kewanee, such a plus ...a great picnic spot, perfect day, restrooms are there just in case. So COOL!! Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

This is cool!! Oklahoma has a round barn as well in Arcadia, just northeast of Oklahoma City on Route 66.

That is a beautiful structure. It is good to see it maintained and used in a tourist area.
