When Buttercup Tool, a small local tool store, decided to close it's doors, Tool Barn owner Vernon Zimmerman, saw the need for keeping a tool store in the area. Zimmerman purchased the company's inventory and moved it to the current location at 19343 Highway C between Eldon and Versailles.

Besides stocking a huge selection of competitively priced name brand tools and fasteners, they also offer a tool repair service.
