Round Barn

The Pete French round barn is one of the stops on your tour. It was here that cattle king Pete French trained horses during the winter months. The inside of the barn is uniquely made from juniper posts and lumber that was hauled from over 60 miles from the north. The round barn was built in the late 1870's or early 1880's, the date is not certain. The barn remains much as it was in Pete French's day with some minor repairs to the outside and roof. The family donated the Pete French Round Barn to the state of Oregon in 1969.
