The Henry and Mary Cyrus Barn, also known as the Sam Schuler Barn, is proposed for nomination under the Multiple Property Document entitled, "Barns of Linn County, Oregon, 1846-1946" (MPD). Built ca. 1884, this barn meets the registration requirements for the property type, "Barns of the Late 19th Century," under National Register Criterion C in the area of Architecture as an increasingly rare and highly representative example of the pattern of features common to barns built in Linn County during this period, including timberframe construction, mortise-and-tenon-joinery, regular-dimension sawn timbers, circular-sawn vertical siding attached with square nails, and a large full-width hay loft.23 The original grain bins remain intact, and the mortised-and-tenoned wood stanchions may be the only remaining example of this important functional element from that era.24 The Henry and Mary Cyrus Barn also meets the registration requirements for the property type, "Silos," under Criterion C in the area of Architecture due to the extreme rarity of its twin wood stave silos, which were common in Linn County during the early-twentieth century.25 Reflecting differing construction dates, the periods of significance for this property are both ca. 1884 and 1930-1939 - the times during which these structures were built. Though minor modifications have been made outside of its historically significant time periods, the Henry and Mary Cyrus Barn maintains sufficient integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, and feeling to clearly convey its historic identity.
