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

The Shaker barn has three entrances – one at grade level for cattle, one ramping up from grade to a second floor, and one descending from grade so that a team of horses and wagon can drive completely around the building and exit at the point of entry, That is, one drive-way is above the cattle floor and one drive-way is below the cattle floor.
