“Barns – A Reflection of Local Economy and Culture,” by Liesel Dreisbach-Williams. Between
1997 and 2002 Dreisbach-Williams made a photographic census of the pre-1960 barns in
Williams Township. It was a project to document architecture important to an earlier era which
depended on agriculture. Today barns are disappearing slowly but surely as they burn down, fall
down, or are torn down. Her illustrated talk will focus on a few of the barns in the township as
they reflect the economy as well as culture.
