Constructed around the 1870s to 1880s by the cattle rancher Pete French, the Pete French Round Barn is a historic structure in Burns, Oregon. It is significant due to its unique architecture, designed by French himself so he can aptly train work horses even in the winter.

The Pete French Round Barn was designed to be the venue for breaking horses in the winter. Originally, there were three round barns in the ranch, but only one managed to survive. The barns handled up to one thousand horses yearly. Made with lumber and juniper posts, the round barn has a stable and a circular track inside. The design allowed the training to commence.

Folks can see the Pete French Round Barn by signing up with the tours offered by the Jenkins Historical Tours.
