Description 

The T.A. Leonard Barn is significant because it represents a period of agricultural development when farmers were experimenting with new production concepts and ideas to offset the rising demand of urbanization. The round barn form is a physical manifestation of the need and desire for a more convenient and efficient farming operation. Located on the eighty year-old family farm in the wheat-producing Palouse region, the Leonard Barn has remained relatively unchanged in its original form and rural context. It is one of two round barns remaining in Whitman County and one of ten remaining in Washington State. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
