This is a must-see site at the entrance to the Johnson-Sauk Trail Park, located on Route 78, near Kewanee. Ryan’s Round Barn, one of the nation’s largest round barns, measuring eighty feet high and eighty-five feet in diameter, and one of forty-two remaining in the State of Illinois, is an architectural marvel. One outstanding feature of Ryan’s barn is its sixteen-feet-wide silo with a moisture-resistant plastered interior located directly in the building’s center. Modern efficiencies from the past include centrally located waste drains and a dual track and trolley system used for delivering feed and for removing waste. The barn’s main floor houses an extensive collection of agricultural antiques.
