Dutch Barn Preservation Society

The Dutch Barn Preservation Society was organized in 1985 and incorporated in 1986 by the Regents of the State of New York as a not-for-profit organization by barn owners, historians and other concerned individuals alarmed by the rapid disappearance of New World Dutch barns. Membership grew steadily since the Society's inception, making preservation initiatives possible. Members have been instrumental in preserving and restoring threatened barns, and in offering technical advice and financial assistance.
