On Monday, November 16, beginning at 6:30 pm at the Bristol County Agricultural High School library, 135 Center Street in Dighton, hear about the styles of barns in Southeastern Massachusetts, tips on stabilizing barns until full preservation can begin, and how the Community Preservation Act supports historic preservation in other Massachusetts towns. Speakers include master timberframer Ian Ellison and other Massachusetts historic preservation specialists.
Submit pictures of local barns with specific questions to Kelley Whitmore, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know we may not be able to cover all submissions. Pre-registration via email to Kelley is requested by not required.
