I saw this little barn in the town of Rosebush, a few miles north of Mount Pleasant, and like so many other barns in the area, it has a round or arched roof. After searching google, I found some info about the round roofs at the National Trust For Historic Preservation. The Round roof gained popularity in the 1920’s after WWI as it was found to have more room for storing hay and other items in the loft of the barn. The roof configuration is sometimes called Gothic, Gothic-Roof, Arched-Roof, or Rainbow-Roof. After World War II barns with no sides were built with just an arched roof like a Quonset Hut.
