Help NBA get to the 2015

National Trust for Historic Preservation

Past Forward Conference! 

November 3-6, 2015 — Washington, D.C.

For the umpteenth year in a row, the NBA is planning to attend the NTHP Annual Conference – and this year’s event is in the nation’s capital where we hope to connect with a new group of potential barn preservationists!  Each year this conference draws thousands of professionals from near and far to promote the saving of great places.  And we’re working hard to get there by raising the funds to pay for our barn-loving booth in a sustainable way.  The money we raise is solely to cover the booth fee, as our Board of Directors attend this conference each year on their own dime (a big thanks to those hard-working  volunteers for their continued commitment to the cause)!

Check out this year’s NTHP t-shirt design and consider sponsoring NBA’s efforts – as this is the kind of advertising that makes a great lasting impression! Below is an image of the artwork that will cover the front of our 2015 model.

For just $50 you get your name on the back of two free barn-loving t-shirts…  And for $100, you get your business logo on the back as well & four free t-shirts to give out to your favorite employees!  (They also make a great Christmas gift for any barn lover at just $15 each!)  Each shirt is made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton.  Email us if you have any questions at!

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.
