Featured Location for May 2020: Arcadia Round Barn

Built in 1898, the Arcadia Round Barn is one of America’s most unique landmarks nestled in the heart of Arcadia, Oklahoma, along historic Route 66. The Arcadia Round Barn is the only wooden round barn in Oklahoma and was listed in the National Register of Historical Places in 1977. Currently, the two-story structure houses the Arcadia Historical and Preservation Society as well as agricultural exhibits and a gift shop for visitors to enjoy. The barn’s upstairs loft serves as an event space and has been used for concerts, parties, weddings, fundraisers, meetings and more.

This film-friendly location has welcomed a number of projects over the years including Elizabethtown (2005), Bringing Up Bobby (2011), and Great Plains (2016) while most recently functioning off-screen for staging purposes on the untitled Tom McCarthy project starring Matt Damon, which filmed in Arcadia.

While some features of the Arcadia Round Barn, including the first floor gift shop, are not currently open to the public due to COVID-19 statewide health and safety guidelines, the venue will host some of its live music events, which are open to the public, beginning May 16, and continue to virtually engage audiences by streaming these concerts online, including its weekly Saturday Morning Music Sessions from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Round Barn events will adhere and enforce strict social distancing and have virus precautions in place with most activity taking place on-site in the outdoor Elm Tree Picnic area.
