ROUND BARN: This year Friends of Ohio Barns is pleased to have the opportunity to feature the Krickenbarger round barn, developed for economy of timber and labor. Few round barns remain today.
REPURPOSED: Mary Bullen’s barn is a great example of how a historic barn can be repurposed and used in today’s world. It will be featured as part of the April 23 event.
LIMSTONE FEATURES: One of the first stops will feature the McQuiston barn. It is a fine example of a very early barn, with limestone outshots, or projections, on each side of the large hinged barn doors.
DOUBLE FOREBAY: After lunch the tour will arrive at the Snyder barn. Here is an original double forebay that has been expanded, with an addition covering the original rear forebay.
HAY HOLE: One of the stops for this year’s tour is the Snyder barn. Dan Troth (shown here), vice president of the Friends of Ohio Barns board of directors, was excited to find that the frame for the Snyder barn hay hole was constructed completely of riven members.
