Significance: The Show Horse Barn was a pivotal structure on the farm, both for its physical presence and for its key role in the history of the farm. The barn, 260' x 150' in size and built at a cost of $100,000 was said to be the largest barn west of Mississippi in 1914. R.A. Long built this barn for his daughter's show horses. Loula Long had been showing horses since 1896 and, at the time of the farm's construction, was already a recognized horsewoman in both national and international circles. The Show Horse Barn was used primarily to house Loula's hackney horses, for which she was most noted.
