Cupolas and Weathervanes

The History of Cupolas

If you spend any time driving around the countryside, you’ll soon notice a trend with the pole barn buildings you pass. The small decorative structure on top of the building is what is called a roof cupola. These elegant domes were introduced to society back in 8th-century architecture and derive from the Latin word meaning “small cask”. Today, cupolas tend to serve a mixture of both ornamental and practical uses.
