HC Speaker: The Special Barns of Chester County

Sunday, May 19, 2019


Our Chester County barns have long been recognized by barn observers for their forms, styles and diverse building materials. Our speaker, Greg Huber, specializes in pre-civil war era house and barn architecture of Holland Dutch and Swiss-German areas. He has documented more than 8,000 vernacular buildings that include more than 5,000 homestead barns. We’ll look at records of barns built 1750 to 1900. Greg is an independent scholar, consultant and principal owner of Past Perspectives and Eastern Barn Consultants. The author of 265 articles on barn and house architecture, Greg has led more than 110 house and barn tours. He will hold a book signing following his talk.
