Do you own an old barn or have a love for them?

Then join us and fellow barn enthusiasts for an evening lecture about Washington’s historic barns and also, the state’s award-winning Heritage Barn Register Program!

Washington Barn History & Heritage Barn Register Wed. April 4, 6 pm at The Center at Colfax Library

Journey the backroads of Washington State as we explore the history, architecture, and styles of barns as well as the technology required to build them. Architectural historian, Michael Houser, will also show barns across the state that have been rehabilitated as part of the State’s effort to preserve our rich agricultural heritage and tell you how to apply for grant funding to preserve your barn. Currently $450,000 is available in matching grants to support rehabilitating historic barns!

As an added bonus, The Center will be filled with stunning local barn photos! Click here to learn more! For more information, contact Kristie Kirkpatrick at 509-397-4366 or
