31. North Prairie Barn
2960N Hwy. 94, LaHarpe Twp.


Reportedly used as an underground railroad station during the Civil War, this barn is constructed of walnut and hickory lumber and is notched and pegged with osage orange pegs. It was cut in peices and moved on hayracks from Fountain Green to its location north of LaHarpe in the 1840s.
