“The first barn tour in June sold out immediately and was a huge success.

Familiarize yourself with these historic barns; learn about their function, construction, use and unique features.”

Storyteller, Ken Mather will provide the history of the barns as researched by Peter Tassie. Some of the barn owners will be on hand to add their personal stories.
