Bennett Barn

This clay tile barn has a round laminated roof and matching silo. It was built in 1950 for a dairy herd. The cow stanchions had drinking cups, and butter was once made in the barn. For convenience, there's a unique chain lift manure carrier.

Take I-35 to State Highway 3 near Latimer. Turn west on 3 and go one mile west to Eagle Avenue. Turn north and go 2.5 miles. The address is 1664 Eagle Avenue.
