The Iowa State University Horse Barns Are Almost More Beautiful Than The Horses Inside

Beautiful brick horse barns have graced the Iowa State University Campus in Ames for nearly a century. The historic barns are not just pretty – they are still used by the Department of Animal Science at ISU. The barns look much the same as they did in the 1920s and they are simply gorgeous. But are these barns prettier than the horses inside? Take a look at the photos below and judge for yourself.

If you can pry yourself away from the foals, you should head over to the Iowa Farm House Museum. It’s the oldest building on campus and will take you back to the earliest days at ISU. It’s sure to capture your heart.
