Washtenaw County's historic preservation program is dedicated to supporting local historic districts, spurring heritage tourism, and attracting investment in our historic resources.

This historic dairy barn features two ventilators on the roof which are five to six feet tall, and a shed addition on the west elevation and connected to the silo.

Silos were built in cylindrical shape for the fermentation of fodder, which fed cattle during the winter months. Domed silo roofs hang with a hook on the framing members and are easily blown off. Ensilage bunkers began replacing silos after the 1960s.

The historic resources on this driving tour are private property and meant to be enjoyed from the public right-of-way. Please do not trespass.
