Somewhere between Ovid and Elsie I came upon this massive octagon barn. I am not exactly sure of the purpose of an octagon-shaped barn. The most well-known one in Michigan is in Gagetown. In the late 1800s, octagon-shaped houses were popular and I guess a few barns were built in that configuration also. I was told they were popular in the great plains states because the shape could withstand the strong winds better. I am not sure the story or history of this particular barn but it is a beautiful looking barn.
