Connecticut Barns is a project of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. Its primary goal is to make accessible the important story of Connecticut agriculture, as symbolized by its wide variety of barn types and uses, as well as to provide a nostalgia trail for all who love barns and fear their numbers in Connecticut is quickly declining.
Being implemented in a series of phases, the Connecticut Barns web site is designed to serve as a central repository for barn surveys, research and general information, images as well as other barn related resources which may retrieved by visitors, residents, scholars, and barn enthusiasts from across the country.
