Listed in National Register Apr 8, 2009

Architect: Shimanek, Wesley
Category: agricultural outbuilding
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

Farmer Wesley Shimanek built this barn around 1900 to house horses, hay, and a wagon near Munden in Republic County. The wood-frame barn features a two-story gable section with a 1½- story shed bay on the west that appears to be original. The plan configuration is oriented to the broad side of the barn with a center aisle and horse stalls on each side. The barn does not feature the more common gable-end haymow, but rather a broad-side haymow. The barn is nominated to the National Register for its architectural and agricultural history.
