Reinke Barn, Bluebird Park

Tucked in a valley in Bluebird Park in Ellisville is the Reinke Barn, moved from its original location west of Clarkson Road on Manchester Road. Originally built in 1905 for Henry Reinke, laborers came from the communities of Sherman and Glencoe to help build the barn.

It could originally hold two horses, six cattle and two wagons, as well as hay in the loft. The three circles on the broad side are hexes to ward off spirits, of course. The park is a beautiful place for a hike.

  1. Chris when you say a barn “was removed” are u saying the barn itself was relocated like on moving platforms?

      I have to admit I don’t know. It could have been disassembled or possibly moved on a truck.
