In search of barns for events?

If you are working to save your family’s barn or that great old barn that symbolizes your hometown’s agricultural history, you are not alone!

Across America, hundreds of individuals, families, towns, working farms and historical societies have declared that their barns will continue to be part of the visual landscape, as useful farm structures or beginning new lives as educational and community resources.

As age, obsolescence and sprawl take their toll, barns are disappearing from the American landscape at a tremendous rate. We are working with state, local, and national partners to strengthen efforts to document and preserve these icons of our rural heritage.

You can become a member and support our efforts to promote and encourage the barn preservation movement in the USA.

Benefits of your NBA membership include continued support of unlimited access to barn preservation resources on our website, two printed NBA newsletters each year, monthly e-newsletters, and an open invitation to join in our sponsored and affiliated events, including various conferences, barn tours, and our Annual Membership Meeting.  

Join the National Barn Alliance and help protect America’s fast disappearing rural heritage!
