Jonathan Ingram, president of the Historic Preservation Society of Gettysburg — Adams County, announced recently that the society is making money available for the preservation of historic barns within Adams County.
The grant program will provide up to $2,500 in matching funds for work done to repair historic barns that are listed in its registry of historic Adams County barns.
At present, nearly 150 barns are included in the registry with an average of 20 barns added every year at the request of their owners.
There is no application fee to apply for the grant, but all applicants must be current society members and can pay the $25 membership fee at the same time that they submit a barn grant application.
Guidelines and application are available at www.hgaconline.org by clicking on “Barn Grant Program” in the left sidebar.
Applications are due by March 30 and the announcement of the award will be made in May. For more information, contact Curt Musselman, project chairman, at 717-659-8827 or barnman<\@>pa.net.
