Summary


Dan shared with us many before and after photos of current barn restorations throughout the state, as well as some interesting old photos of past barn raisings and preservations. Also featured was the story of the passage in 2018, of the Ohio Barn Bill, making the barn the official architectural symbol of Ohio. Dan's testimony and the work of four Westerville school students were instrumental in it's passage. If you are interested in seeing preserved and restored barns in the Ohio rural landscape, you may want to check out the Friends of Ohio Barns website www.friendsofohiobarns.org.
