Columbiana Co. barn photos needed


NEW WATERFORD, Ohio – Columbiana County 4-H clubs and Farm and Dairy encourage interested individuals to submit a picture of a Columbiana County barn (with a brief description and any known history) for consideration in the Columbiana County barn poster project, “The Century Barns of Columbiana County.”
Part of heritage. The project’s aim is to preserve county barns in print for future generations, and proceeds from the project will benefit county 4-H clubs.
“I was raised on a small farm in Franklin County and I have always loved barns,” said project coordinator Jan Douglass. “They are part of our farming heritage.”
Dismayed by seeing the barns of Columbiana County being dismantled, or allowed to dilapidate into a pile of rubble, Douglass decided to do something.
4-H benefit project. “For several years, I’ve toyed with the idea of doing a photographic book of our beautiful old barns. Then, one day several weeks ago, in a conversation with my daughter, it occurred to me I could take the project in a slightly different direction that would benefit the 4-H program of our county.”
Sept. 30 deadline. Send pictures either on a CD, or as a photo print to Jan L. Douglass, coordinator, 48165 Metz Rd., New Waterford, OH 44445.
Pictures can also be e-mailed to If using a digital camera, be sure to use the highest possible resolution.
Deadline for submission has been extended through Sept. 30, 2006.
