Whiteside County Annual Historic Barn Tour
Throughout the Midwest, historians are lamenting the disappearance of barns. There are pages dedicated to preserving, in picture, what has now been destroyed by time or design. Pinterest is filled with barn pictures, books have been written about our barn dotted back roads, foundations created to save our barns and mainstream media writes of the plight of our Illinois countryside.
The nostalgic response of our dying barns in Illinois goes beyond the rustic appeal and architecture. A barn is the most easily identifiable feature of early American farms. Take the Whiteside County Annual Historic Barn Tour and get a glimpse of what has made our nation great- families, hard work, tradition and a sense of pride of years gone by.
Don’t miss this opportunity to step back in time and visit a way of life that is rapidly disappearing from the American landscape.
