John P. Sumich completed construction of the round barn in 1949, three years after construction began in 1946. The building is a unique vernacular expression of a round dairy barn type that was popularized in the 1910s and 1920s for its reputation for enhancing farm practice efficiency and improving sanitary conditions. During this time in Lane County, dairying and creameries continued to develop as a major industry.
