The scenic landscape of Adams County is peppered with barns. Some are new, many are aged, many are kept alive more than a hundred years by love and restoration. Each barn has a story of the people who built it, who have used it, for some it is a story of bloodshed. This is a story of how the barns of Adams County have become more than just a place for animals and feed… discover how we use our barns for celebrations, for interpretation and for nourishment.
