Ehlers Round Barn, in Roca, Nebraska, was completed in 1924 by Harvey W. Ehlers. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its innovative and efficient architecture in 1995.[1]

A snowstorm on 4 February 2012 resulted in severe damage to the structure, and it is purportedly "beyond repair."[2][3]
