Arcadia Round Barn

Arcadia, Oklahoma

OklahomaRoadside Attraction

Traveling Route 66? One of the most iconic Route 66 stops is an unlikely attraction that comes in an unlikely shape: Arcadia Round Barn in Arcadia, Oklahoma.

Farmer William Harrison Odor built the oddly shaped barn in 1898. At 43-feet high and 60 feet in diameter, the unique construction was crafted by soaking native bur oak boards and then curving them using a special form. The round barn’s ground floor once housed livestock, hay, and grain but you can find informational displays about the barn’s history and gift shop. The second floor was used for community dances and is still available for private events.

The barn is the only wooden round barn in Oklahoma and stood for many years but, by the late 1970s, had fallen into disrepair. In 1977 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1988 the Arcadia Historical Society acquired the property. By 1992 it was restored, thanks in part to Luke Robinson (a retired building contractor) and a group called “Over the Hill Gang” who collected donations and donated their own time and labor to restore the property.

While Arcadia Round Barn predates Route 66 by around 30 years, it is now one of the most photographed attractions on the Mother Road.
