Wigdahl Barn

Wigdahl Barn, 4030 360th Avenue, Ruthven (Palo Alto County) – From Ruthven, go 1 mile east on Hwy 18 (360th St), then turn right (south) onto 360th Ave, and go 4.25 miles.

Barn was built in 1936 and stands at 34×64 feet with red clay tile along the bottom.  The owner’s two brothers owned a local hardware store.  They designed a running water system for the barn and house, and a system using a kerosene motor to power a vacuum pump to milk 12 cows, all without electricity.  Barn was later converted to farrowing and feeding pigs.
