Nothing says Americana like a worn and weathered barn, and nearly 30 historic barns stand as living testimonies to McDonough County’s rich agricultural history.

Most dating from the early 20th century, the historic barns represent various styles, including gambrels, half pitch, stick, cross-gable and even a rare true-round barn built in 1914.

The citizens of Macomb and McDonough County are so proud of the barns, they offer four self-guided Historic Barn Tours that send visitors into the scenic countryside to explore the barns for themselves.
