Harrison County Indiana has an AMAZING barn at the Harrison County Fairgrounds (cross shaped pattern c. 1909 for the 50th Anniversary of the Harrison County Fair). We would LOVE to find accurate information about the design/construction of this barn to help establish its historical significance. PLEASE contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can provide assistance for this important project (or refer me on to someone who can...)
THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT!
Karen Schwartz, President, Historical Society of Harrison County
HI, Karen. I believe we spoke earlier this summer about your barn and your concerns for its future. Unfortunately, I was unable to find time for a visit at that time, but could probably arrange one after the Thanksgiving holidays. A visit would give me a better picture of the barn, and perhaps allow me to point you toward the information you seek. My best guess is that most information regarding the barn's history would be sourced locally, but I could probably assist you in understanding its design/construction, and its place in barn geneology--its origins and precedents. If you still feel a visit would be useful to you, please let me know and we can make arrangements.
