It looks kinda like an unfinished church, or a visitor center of some sort. It's cool looking, whatever it is. At some point, please provide grid coordinates...

Looks like drying storage for tobacco.

A wooden building....?

Sorry couldn't resist.

My guess a church that was started, but never completed, OR, a covered bridge.

It's a finished church! It's the Holy Family Shrine in Nebraska.

Cool building. I go to church for the organ music. Really and no jokes either.

Whatever it is, and I'm betting church, it sure looks like Fay Jones was the architect. Looks like first cousin to Thorn Crown Chapel in Eureka Springs.

That was what I was thinking - a prairies counterpart to the forest chapel in AR.

We must have a few Nebraskans on this forum because they identified it as the Holy Shrine which is a church. It is located roughly 14 miles west of Omaha on interstate 80. The first time I saw this building I thought it was a large corn crib as I saw it from the interstate. It stands on a bluff overlooking the interstate.

Look that thing up on the web. Reminds me of Stave churches, but more Danish.

Right on I-80 up on a bit of a hill. I drive out to Utah twice a year and it's hard to miss.

I've never seen it from that view. Did not know it was a church, thought they were just friendly folks.......
