Nearly always impressive because of their size, barns can attain a certain majesty when, like this one, they are topped with an elegant roof shape. A landmark in the Lakeview area, this barn was built around 1910 for J.K Moffatt, who was involved in the horse-trading business. The barn was constructed with the help of neighbours, who pitched in over a number of days to see the loft structure raised. When it was built, the barn was about as up-to-date as you could get, with a solid concrete foundation and curved rafters that were embedded in the walls.
