Architect: unknown
Category: animal facility
Thematic Nomination: Byre and Bluff Barns of Doniphan County

The T.L. White Barn was built in 1927 near Bendena. The barn features a central entrance with a full byre, poured concrete foundation, and a gambrel roof. This structure was originally constructed as a stock barn. It 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.
