Here is a section drawing that shows how the building is put together. It was built in 1898, before statehood. After years of neglect, it was nearly in shambles, but loving restored in 1992.
One of the displays inside the barn is this miniature architectural model of the barn itself. The barn has been the subject of documentaries and even in a calendar of Route 66 attractions.
The barn has it's own website HERE

Here is a picture of me and my mom at the barn.
This is true reason my kids like to stop in Arcadia Oklahoma - an ultra modern soda shop called POPS. POPS has it's own website HERE
POPS contains a restaurant and a truly amazing assortment of soda pop from all over the world, and it is a great place to find a toilet between Oklahoma City and Tulsa!
I chose a canadian orange creme soda, my son chose a chocolate soda, grandma found a sugar free black cherry soda and my daughter found a pink lemonade from France. Special thanks to my wife taking the picture!
