Round Barn in Lookingglass

This wonderful old round barn is in a tiny community called Lookingglass about 10 miles from here. I have had photos of it for several years but have never posted one before. The barn is so different and so special that I wanted the photo to be decent when I did post it. Its hard to find a place to stand to get a good shot because of the road and utility wires and no good place to park. I finally got a shot I like and did some editing to get rid of wires.. Isn't she beautiful?

  2. Faye, You always manage to find the most interesting buildings! And, of course, you photograph them beautifully. The roof must have been a challenge to complete.

  7. This barn is so neat. Yes, she's beautiful. I agree. Wonder why inspired the builder to do a round barn?

  8. Great photograph of this lovely old barn. We lived many years in Wisconsin which has many round barns. The round shape has greater volume to surface ratio than square or rectangular barns making them cheaper to build because less materials are required. They were more popular in the Midwest because they were stronger against wind and storms. Many of these barns are made of stone, left over from the glaciers.

  11. This certainly is an unusual barn Faye. Good work removing the wires. We certainly need powerlines but they do ruin many a good scenic.

    The only round barn I have ever encountered is near Gettysburg Pa. near the Gettysburg Battlefield. It is currently used as a farm market and is quite famous. If you would like to see it http://www.roundbarngettysburg.com/ will take you there.
