A cupola is barn topper - a tower or dome-like feature projecting from the top of a barn roof. At Pleasant Pasture we have an entire Cupola Collection - 12 in all!
They are the silent sentinels that guard our animal residents.
The the function, beauty and enormous size of these structures is awe inspiring.
Provide venting for heat and gases to pass through the barn room to prevent spontaneous combustion
Serve as lightening rods, often with grounding wires
Are often topped with a finial or weathervane
Stand between 6 and 14 feet tall
Have been around a while! Our cupolas are over 100 years each
Now that you know about cupolas, you will begin to see them everywhere!
