Recap – 2018 Conference

The 23rd Annual Michigan Barn Preservation Network Conference was held May 4 and 5, 2018 at Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers World Headquarters and Museum located in St. Johns, Michigan.

Board members Tom Irrer and Steve Rademacher on the bus.

Friday we featured our bus tour of local barns in Clinton and Ionia counties.  For dinner, we gathered at the Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers World Headquarters for some great food and entertaining stories and photos about Michigan barns from Keith Bruder.

The Saturday program featured speakers, auctions and other presentations. One of the highlights was the announcement and presentation of the 2018 Barn of the Year awards.

In addition to camaraderie with fellow barn enthusiasts, the conference provided a wonderful opportunity to share information and to inspire barn preservation efforts throughout the state.
