  • As unique as the octagon barn is the story behind it, is amazing. I just really wanted to see this barn, but I was simply blown away. This place is running due to dedicated people that want to preserve history. If u love history, if u love architecture, if u want to see the good ole days and how they farmed, lived, this is your place. Admission is by donation to keep this place preserved, it was 5.00 pp when I went. The volunteers are so knowledgeable.
  • Great agricultural historical site in the Thumb. I remember going here in the early 90's when there were holes in the roof of the barn and racoons living in the house. What an amazing job the dedicated Friends of the Octagon Barn have done to restore, maintain and improve this gem if the Thumb. If you are interested in agricultural history this is the place to go the first weekend after Labor day each year. There are also other informational days, but this is the big weekend with lots of history in action.
