After driving around Lafayette, we headed towards the small but old town of Independence which is located near the town of Attica. I handed my sister-in-law the map and ask that she see if we would be close to a round barn. She told me that it was right on the way…so we set out to find it.
While driving to this round barn, Judy gave me a lesson in geology and pointed out the small hills in the area were likely created from a drumlin. (I asked her to spell the word for me since I had never heard of it.) She said that it is an elongated hill in that was formed by a glacial ice. Therefore, these glaciers have created the small hills that are located in Indiana, which is basically a flat state.
We drove down the road didn’t find the round barn, so I assumed that it had been destroyed. She suggested that we go up and down the other crossroads, just in case.
Then, I saw the round barn, but Judy didn’t see it as first because a drumlin had blocked it from the road. I stopped at the driveway and decided to drive the long lane down the round barn. When I got closer, I realized that the barn was not round but oval and not really used as a barn but a crib made out of concrete blocks.
