"Hoosiers from across the state are coming together to save Indiana barns. And you can help!"


Indiana barns are disappearing fast. Every year, we drive by familiar farmsteads and shake our heads as we watch the collapse of another iconic symbol of the Hoosier Heartland. While Indiana still has more barns per square mile than all but five other states, the financial incentives to rehab old barns lag behind efforts in other states.

Keep up with what's in the news concerning heritage barns.  In addition to interesting articles and videos on barns in Indiana, we will occasionally post articles from historic barn enthusiasts from around the County.  This is the place to learn what the IBF and other preservation groups are doing to save our barns!

There are several ways to get involved to help save Indiana barns. The first is to join the organization. Your membership gives you access to great information and educational events. Another way is to become a county representative for your county. You will be a local ambassador to help spread the news about our heritage barns. Finally, consider participating in a barn survey
