The Art of the Barn Tour & Show will be held July 11-13, 2014

 

This signature red barn, known as Cider Press Barn, is included on the 2014 Art of the Barn Tour & Show! This year's brand new tour will feature historic barns and the octagonal school house. Barns have been selected based on unique architecture, colorful histories, and modern uses! 

The signature red barn, beautifully painted by Peg Cavanaugh, is privately owned and was built circa 1927 when it was used as a dairy barn. It has survived intact despite a tornado in 1983.
