Regarding Joseph Udall Barn. Joseph Udall purchased this farm around 1900 from William Eagar, one of the three brothers after whom the town was named. The home consisted of a large two-story adobe house in front and a small log cabin in he rear that the Eagers had used as a kitchen. The adobe had two rooms on the first floor and two on the second which were reached by an outdoor staircase. The Udalls tore down the log cabin in 1910 and built a two story brick addition to the back of the adobe. It was completed in 1911 and had the first indoor bathroom with running water in Eagar.
Shortly before, Udall had built this barn which is the only remaining building from his prosperous farm.
