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.
The annual Barn Tour will be in Daviess County on September 24th from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.. Special features will be the Singleton Round Barn and talks by round barn book author, John Hanou.
September 24th also kicks off Hoosier Heritage Barn Week. Watch our Facebook page for daily suggestions on how to recognize the week!
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 make a donation. You can donate in memory or in honor of a loved one or someone who loves barns! Also, consider contributing to the Mauri Williamson Legacy Endowment.
