Dordt College has struggled to find a responsible use for the Kuhl Barn on the prairie ground since the time of its donation almost a decade ago. The structural condition of the barn especially has never been critically analyzed to determine the feasibility of any potential re-designs. Following comprehensive structural, socio-historical, and economic analyses, several proposals were developed for the college to consider implementing.
