General Information

The purpose of this website is to be a data repository for round barns in the USA. Both existing and previously destroyed
round barns are included.  Please e-mail us if you have information to contribute.

The criteria for a round barn to be listed is a bit ambiguous, but generally round structures that are related to agricultural
are included.  Round barns in this database must have at least a rough location.  If the location is entirely unknown the
structure is not included in this database.

This site is designed from the perspective of the location of round barns in proximity to a town.  The site will show all known
round barns within a specified distance from a town.  A general map of the barns is shown at the top of the page, with
individual barn details shown below.  In addition, a picture of the barn is supplied if available.  Most of these pictures
are supplied by the Dale Travis Round Barn website http://dalejtravis.com/barn/rbarns.htm
And finally an arial view of the site is supplied.

The area covered is currently the lower 48 United States. There are plans to expand it to other countries, but that is a future item.

There are currently 1,326 round barns in the database.  States with a high concentration of round barns inclued Indiana, Illinois, and
Iowa.  Most southern states have very few or no round barns.  The far western states also have very few round barns.
Below is a summary of the number of round barns in each state.  States not listed have no known round barns.
