About IBF

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.

Mission - Visio


MISSION: Indiana Barn Foundation supports the preservation of historic Indiana barns.


VISION: The vision of the Indiana Barn Foundation is to raise the awareness of threatened Indiana barns, to increase public and private support of preservation. To encourage the stewardship of historic barns, and to attain significant financial resources to achieve these goals.
