Come visit the Round Barn

This past Saturday was a crazy kind of weather day...it rained all morning then turned into a fine mist in the early afternoon. Jer n I decided to get out of the house and take a ride up to Arndstville Pa. It's a beautiful drive through country roads and just about 45 minutes from our house. This is also the home of the Historic Round Barn. What a neat place to visit...they sell all kinds of produce, flowers, homemade jellies and gift items.


We climbed the narrow winding steps to the second floor. What an amazing structure as you can see.



If walls could talk...bet this barn hid many a Civil war soldier.


How can you not take a photo of the cute little goats they had in a pen outside.



This is an interesting statue... the horse is named Spirit and it represents all the states who fought in the Civil War. There are nineteen blue stars representing the Union states and twelve gray stars that represents the Confederate states. Within each star are the number of casualties from each state.




Hope you enjoyed the tour and a bit of history!

Very cool barn! I've seen them but never been in one. We used to live really close the world's largest round barn. :) Love that horse!

That's the first round barn I've ever seen. Its really neat looking but it must be hard to corner the animals.
Thanks for the journey, Jan.
