Its past: Henry Schick built Max Dau’s barn as a smaller version of his own. The barn is narrower than Schick’s previous barns and was the first in the area with outward-facing stanchions and a central alley to give a manure spreader more room to maneuver in the barn.

Dau sold his barn in 1919 to Henry Wuebbenhorst, who passed the property to his sons.

Its status: Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

The barn is now owned by Nancy Tyrrell, who operates in it a frame shop and antique business called The Nehemian for Fine Framing.

Tyrrell said her barn has fared better than others against Idaho’s wind, because it’s one of the few oriented west-east rather than north-south.
