Category: EventsHistoric Barns of the San Juans

Close
6:00 pm8:00 pm

There's that one barn you drive by and wonder about......

..............................................................What if you could know its story?

Join 100 Friends of Old Island Barns architectural historian Boyd C. Pratt and coordinator Sandy Strehlou as they discuss the work they are doing to unravel the rich history of heritage barns of the San Juans. Hear about a new program designed to make this information available to everyone, near and far--with just a click of a button.

From barn-builders to past barn owners, and uses as diverse as hay storage, prune drying, turkeys, pickles, and yoga, the tales embodied in their aged-wood bones tell the story of who we were, what we grew and how we may find new ways to adaptively re-use and save them.

Join us for a potluck dinner and presentation about old barns and what we can all do to get to know them and support preservation efforts. It takes a village--and we are that village.

This event is being hosted by San Juan Island Grange #966
Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at the Grange Hall on First Street @ Court Street in Friday Harbor. The potluck begins at 6pm, and the talk starts at 7pm. The public is invited.
