Welcome to the Fulton County Retired Teachers Association website.
Round barns are a rarity in this century. Fulton County is identified as the round barn capital of Indiana and possibly the world. Although few round barns remain standing, the round barn is a piece of the historical landscape of Indiana.
Round barns are indicative of an agrarian society in the late 1800’s at the turn of the century. The round barn is a long forgotten ingenuity of a farming society that searched for innovative ways to improve farming techniques.
Just as the round barns of Fulton County have continued throughout the ages, so too has the teaching profession in the county. The Fulton County Retired Teachers Association continues to grow stronger each year as we support education and those who educated in our county.
A new day is dawning on the round barn capital of Indiana. We hope you visit frequently and see how our organization continues to evolve.

The Rochester School Corporation is having issues keeping people working on a day-to-day basis due to COVID-19. The Rochester School Superintendent, Jana Vance, has extended an invitation to any retired teacher to help in the schools.
Support could be in the kitchen, evenings helping with sanitation, etc. One’s willingness to help would be assigned within the comfort zone of the individual. Offering to do this does not require needing to be around children, unless one wishes to do so. The Rochester School Corporation will pay for any and all help. If you are willing and interested in helping, please call the Rochester School’s administration building at 223-2159.
