Historic Barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania


For anyone who has ever admired a barn on an old country lane, this is the story of that barn and many others in Southeastern Pennsylvania, or, specifically, “the hearth,” the area east of the Susquehanna River and South of the Blue Mountains. One of the earliest settled areas in North America, this region of the Keystone State, which includes eleven counties, is home to an astounding 20,000 standing barns, in various states of repair, built from the mid 1700s on. During the presentation, historian Greg Huber will discuss how barns are classified, architectural aspects and regionalisms of barns, barn decoration and barn preservation.
Presentation of Making History Greater Series is free and open to the public.
