Isaac DeTurk had the barn built in 1891 as a horse stable. As one of the state's last true round barns -- the structure Isaac DeTurk built as a horse stable in 1891 has been painstakingly reborn as a city community center.
The state and national historical registrations for the structure dictated little could be done with the exterior. And the surrounding community made it clear to city officials that they didn't want new outbuildings in the surrounding park for a catering kitchen, restrooms and storage.

So all those functions had to be designed to fit inside the 68.5-foot-diameter building while leaving 7,500 square feet of banquet and meeting space on the main floor and mezzanine, according to TLCD Architecture principal architect Mark Adams.
