Pop 296. A village on the N P Ry 18 miles s w of Carlton, noted for its pre-eminence in poultry and dairy development. It is the largest poultry center in the Northwest and the second largest white leghorn center in the U S. The largest chicken hatchery in the U S is located here. Barnum's creamery, widely known for the quality of its products, has been one of the principal factors in the growth and prosperity of this community. Barnum is also one of the leading Guernsey centers in the state and its cow testing association ranks second in the state. In 1926 the average per cow was 340 pounds butter fat. The village is very attractive, being located on the shore of Bear Lake and only a mile and a half from Big Hanging Horn Lake at which is located the Duluth Y W C A camp. A weekly newspaper, the Herald, is published. Barnum has a strong National Bank, a good hotel, noted for its chicken dinners, well stocked retail stores with complete lines of new merchandise, good garages capable of giving service on all makes of cars. The county fair is held here in September. Barnum has a good consolidated school and churches of the leading denominations.
