Nominate your barn

The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation hosts a free workshop from 5-6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse for barn owners wishing to learn more about the Heritage Barn Preservation Initiative and to assist with the heritage barn nomination form and grant application.

The initiative established the Heritage Barn Register, a statewide list of barns more than 50 years old that retain a significant degree of historical integrity. Owners of designated barns can apply for matching grants to assist with barn stabilization and rehabilitation projects.

The next deadline for nominating a barn is December 2010.

The Old Dungeness Schoolhouse is five miles north of Sequim at 2781 Towne Road.
