This rare all-fieldstone barn is located in the Town of Chase, Oconto County, Wisconsin. It was built in 1903 by the Daniel Krause family and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places.

Its walls are made of solid fieldstone and mortar and are two feet thick. The stones were hand picked from local farm fields, but their origin was the Canada Shield. Massive glaciers pushed and tumbled the rock (rounding them as they went) to the Wisconsin region during three known ice ages over the past 70,000 years. Some of the stones (many split by hand) are over 2 billion years old.

The Town of Chase municipality purchased the stone barn in 2007 so they could protect the Stone Barn and make the property into a public park.
