From Wikipedia:

W. S. Kohl Barn
The W.S. Kohl Barn near Richfield, Idaho, United States, is a lava rock barn built in c. 1917, probably by skilled stonemason Jack Oughton and by Sandy Reed. Its design appears to be that of a plan advertised by the Gem State Lumber Company of Richfield, and its approximate date of construction is determined by record of farmer W.S. Kohl taking out a mortgage for it in 1917.It is approximately 40 feet (12 m) by 50 feet (15 m) with a high gambrel roof. It is located about a mile northwest of Richfield.It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.It was listed in a group with many other lava rock structures in Jerome and Lincoln counties.
