Craftsmen are resurrecting old, historically significant “Heritage Barns” across Washington, thanks to a $500,000 state grant.
Eligible barns require urgent repairs, with priority given to those at least 50 years old and still used in agriculture. Their owners must match grants dollar for dollar.
More than 500 Heritage Barns have been identified across Washington, and 46 have been refurbished. Funding is provided through the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. Grant applications are due Oct. 28. To learn more, read the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin story.
