Product description

Review

General readers, architects, engineers, and historians will enjoy this detailed introduction to 19th century/early 20th-century American barn architecture. The 14 chapters celebrate 14 historic structures located in 11 states from around the US. Each chapter opens with a brief overview of the featured barn, including when it was built, how it was used, and its unique properties. Each structure is documented with scale drawings, detailed elevations, architectural plans, and b&w photographs accompanied by explanatory captions. The book includes a foreword by Gregory D. Huber, barn and house historian, independent scholar, and consultant based in Pennsylvania.
