1. Aydolette Barn and Thrashing Floor Marker
Inscription.  The Aydolette barn is a double-crib design, which includes a corncrib on the east end and a crib on the west end for housing stock. Before mechanization, wheat was cut with a scythe, shocked in the field, and then brought to the thrashing floor. The wheat grains were separated from the chaff on the thrashing floor then swept up and put in sacks. This may be the last thrashing floor remaining in the Midwest.
