Barn Tour – Part III

September 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Discover Hidden Barn Treasures in Historic Oley Valley with barn and house historian Greg Huber.

Not only will Greg Huber enlighten us with his wealth of knowledge about barns while traveling throughout the Oley Valley but we will also tour the interior of several of the barns as well. Architectural features, building methods and materials utilized will explain the transition from European building styles over hundreds of year to that of early North American Barns to Ground, Sweitzer and Standard Barns that are familiar to all of us. Additional information will be given on how to date a barn as well as barn decorations and mystery marks.

Books will be available for purchase and a book signing will be offered during the tour.

There are two tour times available. Please join us in the morning from 8am-12pm or in the afternoon from 1pm – 5 pm tour.

Unlike previous tours, no lunch or bus transportation will be provided.
Cost per person: $35 Members, $45 Non-Members.  Car pool only, limited to the first 12 vehicles that sign up.

Contact Vicky Heffner at education@berkshistory.org to register.

Participants must have the ability to get in and out of their vehicle repeatedly, climb steps and walk short distances.
