The program will be presented by Rich Tyler.

Old barns are more than just solid functional buildings. They represent the soul of our farming heritage, and perhaps more.

Barn design was based on experience, needs and ambition. Their function indicated both the farm operating and the farmer's personal touch.

But what is happening to our old barns? Will metal replace wood? Why should we care about old barns today? These and other question will be discussed as we explore the history and current importance of barns.

This program is made possible from funding from the Humanities Iowa, a private, non-profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

For more information call the Sanford Museum at 225-3922 or email sanfordmueseum@iowatelecom.net.

This event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
