Round Barns, which include truly round and many sided, can be found in many parts of the USA. The largest concentrations of this style of barn are found in the midwest (Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin). Vernon County here in Wisconsin boasts more round barns than any other county in the USA. Some of these unique barns are being preserved and taken care of while others are deteriorating and falling apart. Most round barns are built with a silo in the center of the barn.
