Historic barn workshop in Skagit County set for Sept. 10

Sep 5th, 2013 | Category: News

LA CONNER – The Skagit County Historical Museum is hosting a free workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. for owners of old barns wishing to learn more about the state’s Heritage Barn Preservation Initiative. A program of the Washington State Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, this initiative established the Heritage Barn Register, a statewide list of historically significant barns. Owners of historic barns over fifty years old that retain a significant degree of historic integrity can nominate their barn to be designated as a Heritage Barn and be included in the statewide register, and are eligible to apply for matching grants to assist with barn stabilization and rehabilitation projects. Chris Moore, Field Director with the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, will be on hand to answer questions. The deadline for nominating a barn to the Heritage Barn Register is Oct. 1, with the deadline to submit applications requesting barn rehabilitation grant funds set for Oct. 28. The Skagit County Historical Museum is located at 501 S 4th Street in La Conner. For more information, call (360) 466-3365 or visit www.skagitcounty.net/museum.
