Summary

The Delaney Barn in Aurora, Colorado is a round structure constructed ca.

1902. A woman who grew up on the farm remembered taking grain (unidentified)

from it to feed cattle (Michelle Bane, personal communication 1994), suggesting

that it originally functioned as a granary. The building was converted to a

dairy barn sometime before 1918. Windows, a concrete ground floor, and a wooden second floor supported by wooden posts were installed at that time (Nan Rickey, personal communication 1994) . The shape of the structure is unusual for the west, and it is larger (31 feet diameter) than normal for a granary in this part

of the country. The oral history is not definitive and additional data relative

to the original purpose of the building are needed.
