The Menter Farmstead, near Big Springs, Nebraska, United States, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. It is a farmstead built 1919–1928 during a regional agricultural boom sparked by winter wheat demand in World War I, and reflecting increased mechanization with its grain elevator and concrete block construction.[2]

The most significant historic structure is the approximately 100-by-100-foot (30 m × 30 m) barn, built c.1919. It has a complex roof with eaves and original wood shingles, built upon lower concrete block walls and a concrete foundation. It has been termed a variation of the "Midwest Three Portal Barn" type.[2]

The listing on the National Register in 2011 included several contributing and non-contributing buildings.[2]
