Burns, Oregon - Peter French's Round Barn

Peter French was the Cattle King south of Burns around the 1870's. He had the round barn built by his men to break horses in the winter time -- only to find that the horses had to be re-broken in the spring. It is constructed of huge Juniper logs, rock and cut lumber. Believe it is a national monument. There is no one there. Fenced off a gravel road, off paved Diamond Craters Road.
