Architect: unknown
Category: agricultural outbuilding
Thematic Nomination: Byre and Bluff Barns of Doniphan County

The John Streib Barn was built in 1890. The building is L-shaped, has a stone foundation, wood lap siding, and features a full byre under each section. It originally functioned as a mixed use barn. 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 each barn's 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 of the county and are significant for their relative rarity and architecture.
