Barn at Geddes and Earhart

 

continued

"This reminds me of something," wrote Pamela Kittel about the cupola shown in July's photo, "but I have no time for research." She and Bruce Conforth guessed the barn at Cobblestone Farm. Suzanne Butch thought it was from "one of the garages behind Casey's Tavern." It's actually atop the large L-shaped barn that stands just within city limits at the corner of Geddes and Earhart roads.

Originally part of a dairy farm purchased by H.B. Earhart in 1917, the barn was moved from the south side of Geddes, reportedly to appease Mrs. Earhart's sensitivities. In 1961, just over half of the original 400-acre estate was purchased by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod for construction of Concordia College (now University). The barn serves as the university's maintenance building.

Only Butch, Conforth, and Kittel ventured a guess in July. Alas, no prize was awarded.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue on the August Back Page to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
