Baker-Koren Round Barn Farm

24115 South U.S. Highway 52
Manhattan, IL 60442


The Baker-Koren Round Barn Farm is a beautiful, 103-acre park that offers two types of recreational areas.  The first includes open space, Jackson Creek, wetlands, and an oak grove.  The more active section offers a baseball/softball field, a forest-themed playground, a tennis court, volleyball courts, trails, horseshoes, a fitness circuit, an 18-hole disc golf course, and a fishing pier.  The historical 100-foot diameter Round Barn on the property was built in 1898 from the lumber left over after the 1893 dismantling of the Chicago Columbian World Exposition.
