Illustrated with 200 barn sketches, diagrams, and maps, this book takes you on a journey through the St Croix River Valley.

Copies of the book are available on the WCHS website and in-person at the Washington County Heritage Center.

The book grounds you in the geography, geology and biology of the region and introduces you to its original inhabitants, the Dakota and Ojibwe peoples, European explorers, fur traders and loggers and the settlers that followed them. It is a celebration of regional diversity and architectural expression through a single type of building–the barn.

Topics Jim plans to discuss include:

  • History of the Valley
  • People of the Valley
  • Barn Builders
  • Types of Barns
  • Types of Barn Roofs
  • Special Use Barns
  • Big Changes in Farming
  • Barn Extensions
  • Saving Barns
