We are a nation-wide, non-profit organization coordinating preservation efforts to save America’s Historic Barns. Our members are farmers and city dwellers, students, historical groups, timber framers, and lots of folks who just love barns.
We fulfill our mission to provide national leadership for the preservation of America’s historic barns and their rural heritage by:
- Encouraging the documentation, through surveys and photography, of historic barns and other rural structures;
- Encouraging and support the creation of statewide and local barn preservation organizations and programs;
- Facilitating the sharing of information on barns, their history and their maintenance;
- Supporting educational programming related to barn and farmstead preservation.
National Barn Alliance is a membership organization with a volunteer board. Members of the Board of Directors are active in local, state, and national efforts to preserve America’s historic barns.
We are proud to partner with state/regional barn preservation groups and preservation-focused organizations: Friends of Ohio Barns, Friends of the Thumb Octagon Barn, Historic Barns of Nipmoose, Silos & Smokestacks Nat’l Heritage Area, Timber Framers Guild, The Preservation Trust of Vermont, and Kansas Barn Alliance.
We also partner with two companies who specialize in historic barn repair and rehabilitation and frequently travel across the country to help save barns: Woodford Brothers and Trillium Dell Timberworks. To learn more about how you can join the National Barn Alliance, click here!
