Barns can tell us a great deal about the history of agriculture in New Hampshire. John C. Porter, author of Preserving Old Barns: Preventing the Loss of a Valuable Resource, will demonstrate how these majestic barn structures represent Yankee ingenuity, hard work, and skilled craftsmanship, as well as providing a link to our past that adds to the state’s scenic beauty.

John was raised on a dairy farm in Lebanon. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.S. degree in animal science, and then went on to get a master’s degree from Cornell University in Animal Nutrition and Farm Management.

The program will be held Saturday, March 14, at 1 p.m. The Wilmot Public Library is located at 11 N. Wilmot Road. For more information, contact Mary Fanelli at, Glynis Hart at or visit This is a N.H. Humanities program and is free and open to the public.
