There’s Something Incredibly Unique About This Nebraska Barn
There are endless stories out there in Nebraska and an unbelievable number of amazing things you never knew existed. If you live near (or have visited) Red Cloud, you probably know about the Starke Barn…but for the rest of us, this delightfully quirky piece of Nebraska is one more fascinating story about our collective history.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The unique barn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and it’s a stop on the annual Trail of Treasures flea market. This truly is a one-of-a-kind barn; you’ll find other round barns in Nebraska and in surrounding states, but none is quite as large and impressive as the Starke Barn. Visit their website for information on tours and upcoming events.
