Beck Barn

Beck Barn, 1235 E Eagle Rd, Waterloo (Black Hawk County)

Barn was built around 1910 and was utilized mainly for draft horses and hay storage. This barn replaced the original which was lost to fire, and it was of a similar design to the Frost Barn located just to the East.  The barn’s livestock diminished in the 1950s as the farm turned mainly to row crop production. Steel siding was added in the 1970s as the wood siding was deteriorating, and a steel roof was added in the 1990s. With a growing interest in horses during the mid-2000’s, interior restoration began.  In 2023 the limestone foundation was restored and additional exterior updates are planned for the future.
