Description 

The Shelburne Museumís eighty-foot-diameter Round Barn is one of only two dozen built in Vermont. This Round Barn was originally constructed in East Passumpsic, Vermont, in 1901 and moved to the Museum in 1985-86. Much of it was dismantled and moved on flatbed trucks, but the 9,000-pound upper segment of the silo was flown across the state by helicopter and lowered into place.
