Historic Barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania:

18th and 19th Centuries

 

The Goschenhoppen Historians will open the 2017-2018 program year with an illustrated talk on Historic Barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania by noted barn historian and researcher Greg Huber at its September meeting. Mr. Huber has been studying and researching barns for many years and frequently leads barn tours throughout Berks, Bucks, Lehigh and northern Montgomery Counties. His latest book on the subject, The Historic Barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania: Architecture and Preservation, Built 1720 – 1900, was just published in late July and he is currently engaged in book tours throughout the eastern states. His engagement as the September meeting speaker was coincidental to the author/book tours and program attendees will be able to take advantage of the coincidence as he will have copies of his newest book for sale and will autograph those or others of his publications if desired. Mr. Huber was also the editor of a compendium, The New World Dutch Barn: The Evolution, Forms, and Structure of a Disappearing Icon, released in 2001.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the Goschenhoppen Historians’ headquarters in Red Men’s Hall, 116 Gravel Pike (Route 29), Green Lane, PA. As always, there is no entry fee and the public is welcome. Refreshments will be served during an informal get-together at the close of the meeting. More information can be obtained at 215-234-4119 or on the Historians’ website: www.goschenhoppen.org, or on Facebook.
