The Shelbourne Round Barn, Vermont

About 100 years ago, round barns enjoyed a flurry of popularity after being introduced in Quaker settlements. They had some advantages as cattle could be housed in the center and feed delivered from the edges.

This round barn was initially built in 1901 in East Passumpsic, Vermont. It is eighty feet in diameter and three stories high. It was dismantled and rebuilt at the Shelburne Museum center in Vermont in 1985. Within the grounds you can also visit the Shelburne Covered Bridge.
