First constructed in circa 1890 by Jacob Weigle, the Weigle Barn is a representative example of early agricultural buildings in Cowley County. The barn is a unique example of a timber-framed bank barn with a milled-lumber gable-roof addition (circa 1920). The Weigles’ L-shaped barn was constructed to house livestock and to store grain and feed. This barn and its associated livestock pens are nominated for their local significance in the areas of agriculture and architecture. The barn continues to function as the center of farming operations for the Weigle Family.
