Notes
Survey number HABS ID-40
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-30).
Significance: This barn is a typical example of an open-sided structure used to store baled hay. / This is a wholly typical structure, of a type found throughout the semiarid hay regions of the West. It was used simply to store baled hay. The generally dry climate obviated the need for an enclosed space - thus the open sides. The hay hood is a traditional, triangular form. There is no written documentary information on this structure, and its use of salvaged timbers makes dating by construction method difficult. It may have been built by Fred Amyx, who acquired the lot on which it is located, in 1924. The report on Montour prepared by the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office dates the barn c. 1925.
