Description
The American barn is a distinctive and powerful symbol of our nation's agrarian roots, recognized not just in our country but around the world. With 70 black and white photos and 90 scale drawings, this book looks at 14 outstanding barns in close detail, from the historic Culp Farm Barn, which played a crucial role in the Battle of Gettysburg, to the George Hall Barn of Indiana, a true round barn with a remarkable five-pointed roof structure, which has stood for more than a century without needing restoration. These architectural marvels have been extensively documented by the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER). Revealing the sophisticated designs and advanced structural features of these buildings, the book is detailed enough to satisfy the modeler, artist, or builder, as well as the enthusiast.
