Green County barn inventory starts in spring
Placeholder Image
ALBANY - The Green County Historical Society will begin an inventory of Green County barns in 2016 and will be hosting an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Jan. 26, at Albertson Memorial Library, 200 N. Water St., Albany.

The meeting will explain the purpose of the inventory, which is to preserve Green County's agricultural history. Program presenters may show examples of various first- and second-generation Green County barns that replaced the original barns as the dairy business succeeded.

According to the Green County Historical Society's website, the State Historical Society of Wisconsin's Historic Preservation Division is assisting with the project, which will encompass all 16 townships in the county and take one year to complete. In order to have unobstructed views of the barns, the inventory will begin before the trees bud this spring.

Individuals interested in volunteering to work on the project may sign up at the program or contact the historical society. For more information, call 608-862-3491 or email
