Looking to Strengthen Our Voice
Several years ago, a number of organizations and individuals came together to address the growing concern with the loss of New York State’s barns. This was the beginning of the New York Barn Coalition, whose mission was to increase public awareness and promote the appreciation, preservation, rehabilitation and re-use of older and historic barns. The Coalition began working toward preserving agricultural landscapes, revitalizing rural communities and fostering pride in New York State’s cultural heritage.
The Coalition is now a non-profit membership group, enabling us to expand our membership and more effectively address the concerns of barn caretakers and enthusiasts.
Barns. Here Today…Gone Tomorrow???
If you have at any time admired the intrinsic beauty of a barn or a rural landscape, you have probably also felt the loss when a favorite one disappeared. What will happen to all the barns from New York’s agricultural past? Who will care for the barns we take for granted? You may know of some that are no longer here, or you may be an owner of one in need of repair.
Whatever your lifestyle, it is quite likely that your grandparents or great-grandparents were the ones who lived on these farms and loved these barns. In order for the Coalition to expand our barn preservation efforts, we would like you to tell us about your interest in barns.
Going, going, gone…?

With your help, we plan to offer regional workshops, grant programs, a service provider list, and a web site of Barn News from a variety of sources. We also plan to continue our partnerships with other preservation organizations, our booth at the New York State Fair, and our premiere event–our annual conference.
