"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.


Our annual self-guided driving barn tour was cancelled this year due to the pandemic. But, you can still watch a virtual barn tour showing four Monroe county barns and their owners.

Barn News

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!

Get Involved

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! This makes a great gift. Finally, consider participating in a barn survey
