History

Graphics/Map/Directions to Site 6

This round barn is reported to have been built by John DeWitt and his son Ernest in 1912. This barn has some stylistic differences from barns built by the Shivers, especially the exterior silo.

As you drive along Hwy F about 1 1/2 miles past the intersection with Hwy ZZ, you will pass a gravel road on the left side that is now closed to traffic. This road formerly led to several farms; two of these had round barns built by Algie Shivers. The barns were torn down when the property was acquired by the State of Wisconsin for WildCat Mountain State Park.
