Earlier this year, the Shenandoah County Historical Society completed a program to examine six historic barns using dendroarchaeology (tree-ring science). This science allows us to determine the year trees used in barn construction were cut down, or felled. Because barns were usually built within one year of the felling of the trees, an implied construction date can be determined.

Join team members John Adamson, Kristen de Graauw and Barbara Adamson as they present information about six old Shenandoah County barns which were investigated by this project. How old are the oldest barns? Did they survive the Civil War? What do family history and public records tell us about these barns?

Those interested in this subject can attend the program which will be presented virtually, via Zoom on Tues., Oct. 26 at 7 pm. The event will last approximately one hour with time for all attendees to ask questions of the project team.

To register for this program, send an email to adamsons@shentel.net. Details will be sent via email about one week before the program.

This program has been made possible by a grant from the Virginia Humanities with additional support from the Shenandoah County Historical Society.
