BarnsA new book by Claudia Smith

Barns evolved with a changing economy, from the log shanty barns of first settlement, to the large timber-frame structures of the dairy economy.

Featuring barns of eastern Ontario with a special focus on Lanark County — a comprehensive look at the “heart of the farm,” the structure and uses of barns, complete with barn histories, anecdotes and over 200 photographs.

Just in time for Christmas!
