LO­CATED ON A FARM NEAR VIROQUA, WIS­CON­SIN, this round barn is one of many in Ver­non County, which boasts more round barns than any other county in the United States. For the record, Ful­ton County, In­di­ana, has long de­clared it­self the Round Barn Cap­i­tal of the World—a slo­gan adopted be­fore any­one re­al­ized Ver­non County ac­tu­ally had more. The barn pic­tured here, owned to­day by Angie Cina, was built in 1915 by her grand­par­ents, Burt and Mary Cun­ning­ham. The struc­ture was used as a dairy barn un­til the late 1970s and now pro­vides stor­age space. Angie has worked hard to keep it in good shape, help­ing to main­tain Ver­non County’s her­itage and round-barn cham­pion sta­tus.
