The Law Passed! The Barn is now the State of Ohio’s Official Architectural Symbol!

Friends of Ohio Barns is so very pleased to announce that on December 19, 2018 Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into law Senate Bill 86 that contained a measure to add the barn structure as the official architectural symbol for the State of Ohio!

Kudos go to Sarah Gellner, Anna Borders, Rachel Kaufman and Adriane Thompson who started out with a dream of designating the barn structure as an official symbol for the State of Ohio five years ago while in 7th grade at the the Genoa Middle School in Westerville, Ohio.   Kudos also go to their teachers, Debbie Pellington and Caley Nestor Baker, who supported them throughout the process.  And many thanks go to State Representative Anne Gonzales, (R)-Westerville, for helping the teens navigate their idea through the legislative process.

Friends of Ohio Barns have been behind these students along the way hoping they would succeed.  Our hats go off to them for a tremendous effort!
