Images of Round Barns

Round Barns

The largest concentration of round barns are found in the Midwest, particularly in Vernon County, Wisconsin. Round barns were built to make the feeding and milking of cows more efficient, though some attribute their construction to the folk belief that evil spirits hid in corners. These images are of round barns still standing in Wisconsin.
