EXPLORATORY POLLEN ANALYSIS OF A SOIL CORE FROM UNDER THE FLOOR OF THE DELANEY BARN, AURORA, COLORADO
Author(s): Gerald K. Kelso
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.
