Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1223
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-55).
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Significance: This barn was built by Reuben Ross in 1925 to service his 140-acre farm. Built to house farm machinery, feed, livestock, this utilitarian structure incorporated several stylistic influences. The tripitched gambrel roof is an adaptation of a three-portal type, seen here with a gambrel instead of gable roof. The design of this barn is a result of the owner being both builder and designer, a situation that was not uncommon in the building of farms.
