BARNS OF CARLTON COUNTY
The museum's South Gallery now has an exhibit showing off some of the work our Barn Photo Committee has produced. The committee members have been photographing barns in twelve of our county's townships so far, hoping to start the other thirteen townships soon. On exhibit are some of the barns that were photographed first. More photos will be added periodically. These barn photos are framed in Carlton County barn wood, donated by Gunilla Jansson, and put together by Rachel Johnson and her brother James Johnson.
The exhibit also shows images of historic Carlton County barns from our archival collection. Many of these older barns are now gone, emphasizing the purpose of the committee to photograph barns now before they disappear.
