South Dakotan Roundbarn – Gettysburg, SD – Bob Kisken

When I first started my round barn project I would take a photo, print it, mat it and add it to the folio. I have a hard time taking 3 or more before I get away. I just got back from SD, Minn, Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. This is one of the photos I took in SD. The barn in all its majesty sits on a gravel road. It appears to be getting old and worn out. I would love to live across from it and watch it as it ages. Perhaps I am getting goofy in my old age  but what the hell. cheers bob

Bob-
This is the Sloat Barn near Gettysburg, SD.  I have a great black and white print of this over my fireplace.  The barn was photographed as part of the book on old South Dakota buildings that was published in the last couple years.  The main author/editor was Jay D. Vogt, State Historic Preservation Officer, for South Dakota.

At one time, the owner wanted to jack it up and move it to town to have an antique business in but thankfully that didn’t happen but it sits in the middle of nowhere.

Take care,
Joy
