Frost Barn

Frost Barn, 1745 E. Eagle Rd, Waterloo (Blackhawk County)  – From La Porte City, take US 218 (La Porte Rd) north, then turn left (west) onto E Eagle Road.

Bank barn was built in the 1870s and measures 88’x40’x40′.   The barn, which has been in the owner’s family since 1946, was completely restored in 2018.   An Amish construction crew toiled for seven weeks taking off the old wood, replacing damaged beams/supports, and putting on all new southern yellow pine siding shipped in from Oregon.  With a couple of coats of red paint and the tuckpointing of the three-foot thick limestone walls, the barn looked like new.  Original use was horses and milk cows.  The barn now houses Suffolk sheep, which are fed from square hay bales stored in the haymow.  (Award of Distinction)
