Friends of Ohio Barns is a new, non-profit organization formed to promote awareness of the significance of Ohio’s Barns. There has been major growth and development in our state, coupled with changes in agricultural practice and down sizing of family farms. These factors are threatening the future of our historic farm buildings and rural landscape. Many people have attended Ohio Barn Conferences and Barn Again! seminars seeking help and advice on how to maintain their family barns. Others, who may or may not own a barn, are concerned by the swift disappearance of the old, familiar agricultural icons from our landscape. Friends of Ohio Barns was formed so you can help in finding solutions.
