Rural New England: Architecture in the Round

Unique New England structures include Massachusetts' round stone barn, and Vermont's one-room schoolhouse and non-denominational church

Non-denominational church
This barn is noted as being the first large round stone barn built in this country. It's a Shaker round stone barn that is now part of the Hancock Shaker Village Museum (actually in Hancock, Mass, but served by Pittsfield, Mass.). It was used as a prototype by other farmers and promoted by several agricultural colleges, resulting in construction of round barns in most of the states and in Canada.
