The Barns of Adams County

Adams County, known around the world for the American Civil War and President Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address, is known locally as a family community built on dedication, respect of the land, fresh air and relationships. We work hard and we play hard. We invite strangers into our community and our homes and we make them friends. The stories of Adams County are what make our destination special, we hope that you will discover people you wish to meet and places you just can't wait to see... 

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.
