Stuckwish Round Barn

Round barns are an artistic expression in the rural Jackson County landscape. A briefly occurring phenomenon, round barns were thought to be more economical to build than the traditional rectangular barns because they used less timber. The Stuckwish Barn was built in 1911 by Daryl Carter for George Stuckwish. It is 60 feet in diameter with a self-supporting two-pitch gambrel roof and was constructed of locally milled beech wood lumber. The annual Round Barn Bike Ride is held in celebration of these unique structures.
