Photo taken in 1923 - By the 1920s, the home portion of the Bell Farm had been acquired by the Holden family. The round barn was in the process of being converted from horse to cattle use, as is evident by the replacement of the small air vents with larger windows, so that there was more daylight inside the barn by which to milk the cows. At the time of this photo, 1923, the octagonal cupola on the roof had not yet been replaced by the round silo. Although trees have grown up around the house, the barn still stands on the open prairie. (Source: Todd Rennebohm, Indian Head)
