The Barns of Sangamon County

The Sangamon County Historic Preservation Commission (SCHPC) is in the process of creating an eBook documenting the barns of the County. The book will highlight the agricultural heritage of the area including how various immigrant communities used and built different types of barns to serve their needs. The SCHPC is partnering with the Sangamon County Farm Bureau in this endeavor.
