"Who was behind the round barn creation in Indiana?
Benton Steele eloquently expressed his feelings of a farm's aesthetic appeal.
"Generally speaking, our farms are utterly devoid of anything like artistic features. There being no indication of original thought or beauty, much less actual practical utility."
-Benton Steele (Father of Indiana's round barns)
Benton Steele's beginnings
Benton Steele was born in 1867, roughly 30 miles east of Indianapolis. He overcame the limitations of a third grade education to later become a skilled carpenter, draftsman, and architect. At the age of thirteen, Steele's interest in the circular shape would peak when his Great Aunt would have an octagonal home constructed. In his teen years, Steele would learn carpentry skills as an apprentice as well as work in a general store and post office. Steele's real talent would shine through as a draftsman and architect, drawing magnificent plans and blueprints. As a man, Steele would advertise his innovative blueprints and drawings of round barns in an Indianapolis agricultural newspaper, "The Indiana Farmer," from 1902 to 1909. This would become the catalyst for pole barn construction in Indiana."
