Event description

Description

If you own or aspire to acquire an old barn, or if you work with farmers or are concerned about preserving Indiana’s rural heritage, you’ll gain lots of useful information at the BARN AGAIN! Workshop & Tour on October 6 in Putnam County, Indiana. The workshop will offer practical solutions from experts on how to maintain, rehabilitate, and adapt old barns for today's needs.

You’ll learn about basic barn styles and types prevalent in Indiana and financial incentives and technical assistance available to barn owners. Barn expert Rick Collins of Trillium Dell Timberworks will cover the basics of timber frame construction and how it affects barn rehabilitation and reuse. After lunch (included in the cost of the event), you’ll take an afternoon tour with rehab experts visiting three historic Putnam County barns—a vacant 19th-century Midwest three-portal barn in need of a new use, an early 20th-century dairy barn converted to a sawmill operation, and an early 20th-century transverse frame barn that remains in agricultural use.

Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for check-in, with first session beginning at 9 a.m. Lunch takes place at the museum at 12:15 p.m., followed by the tour from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.

The ticket price includes workshop sessions, handouts, lunch and tour. Tickets must be purchased by noon on October 2.

BARN AGAIN! is presented by Indiana Landmarks and Heritage Preservation Society of Putnam County in partnership with the Indiana Barn Foundation, Putnam County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Putnam County Community Foundation, Purdue Extension - Putnam County, and Putnam County Museum
