Thematic Nomination: Byre and Bluff Barns of Doniphan County

The Albers (Albert) Barn was constructed in 1907 near Brendena. It is a one-story, three-bay, side-entrance, board-and-batten structure with a limestone foundation. While the building originally functioned as a mixed use barn it is now vacant. This barn was nominated as one of the 18 Byre and Bluff barns of Doniphan County. A common feature of these barns is that at least one side of the foundation is embedded in an earthen bank or bluff. These barns are an example of vernacular architecture built to take advantage of the hilly topography and are significant for their relative rarity and architecture.
