The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation announces its new Barn Grant

In the past two years, the Connecticut Trust has surveyed almost 900 barns across the state. This survey has yielded a wealth of information about Connecticut’s agricultural history and buildings, but it has also highlighted the threats that face many historic barns and related structures (see “The Most Important Threatened Historic Places,” CPN, September/October 2006).

In December the Trust took a step toward helping these endangered buildings when the Board of Trustees approved a new grant program dedicated to historic barns. This program will allow the Trust to help owners evaluate buildings for structural integrity, for historic significance and for feasible uses other than agricultural. The goal is to distribute at least $25,000 in grants by June 30. The grants will be funded through the Connecticut General Assembly, the Connecticut Humanities Council and the Commission on Culture and Tourism.   

The grants will be offered to non-profit and municipal barn owners, as well as to private owners—a sector for which little, if any, help is currently available. Applicants should be able to demonstrate community-level significance, support from a local historical organization or municipality or from a local agricultural group, and a public benefit from the grant.   

The Trust’s barns grants can be used for assessments of historic integrity and structural conditions, nominations to the National Register, evaluation of adaptive use opportunities, following Donavan Rympkema’s Feasibility Assessment Manual for Re-using Historic Properties or any combination of these options.
