DescriptionAn exterior view of the Rodman octagonal barn near Edgeley. One can clearly see the unusual roof covering the structure. The barn does not appear to be octagonal from this angle due to the addition of large hay dormers on the east and west sides which form a gable roof. A truck is parked inside the fence in front of the structure.
