Barn Of the Year Recipients 2013

Agricultural Use:

Terry Randall Barn – Terry and Diane Randall

Purchased by his father in 1954 when he started his milk herd. An earlier barn with hewn timbers was moved a short distance and added to the back of this bank barn in 1926. Barn is currently used for hay and equipment storage and to house calves and beef steers. Repairs are constantly being made and the barn was repainted in 2012.

Gish Barn – Richard and Denise Weis

A very early example of a Pennsylvania barn or forebay bank barn with “outshots”. It has double granaries and double threshing floors. The barn underwent some of the most extensive repairs we have ever seen in an effort to save it for future generations.
