“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.
