Teamwork and Timbers: It's Barn Raisin' Time!
by hillary dorwart
Saturday September 15, 2012: 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm -- Pittsfield Branch: Program Room
Reconstruct a quarter-scale replica barn! Held in partnership with the Michigan Barn Preservation Network, this event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience a traditional community barn raising.
Common in Michigan during the late-19th and early-20th centuries, barn raisings are similar to husking bees and quilting bees, where neighbors depended upon each other to accomplish what they could not do alone.
This event is for Grade 3 - Adult.
