Built in 1917 by the Lipp family, the Lipp Barn typifies the Midwest Prairie style with its center-aisle plan with flanking shed bays, wide sweeping roofline, and large haymow and gambrel-shaped roof designed to maximize hay storage. Originally constructed to house horses, livestock, hay, and grain, the barn has experienced only minor changes as it has adapted to evolving agricultural practices and technology. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas" multiple property listing for its architecture and its association with local agricultural history.
