Historic Barns

In the past two years, the Connecticut Trust has surveyed almost 900 barns across the state. This survey has yielded a wealth of information about Connecticut’s agricultural history and buildings, but it has also highlighted the threats that face many historic barns and related structures (see “The Most Important Threatened Historic Places,” CPN, September/October 2006).

In order to share its new-found information about barns and barn preservation with the public, the Trust is working to expand www.connecticutbarns.org and exploring the possibility of publishing a book on Connecticut barns.
