BARN CALENDAR AVAILABLE AT MUSEUM
The Carlton County Historical Society announces the first
publication by its Barn Photo Committee, a "Barns of Carlton County -
The Barn Calendar contains 13 images of existing barns in
Carlton County. It represents the efforts of our volunteer Barn Photo
Committee, which has been meeting for over a year to begin a long-term project
of photographing all the barns of Carlton County before they cease to exist.
The committee shares the mission of the Carlton County Historical
Society to "collect, preserve and disseminate the history of Carlton
County". This project to collect the images of our county's barns ties into
Governor Dayton's proclamation declaring the month of September 2016 as Local
Heritage Preservation Month.
If you are interested in attending our monthly committee
meetings, have a barn or know of a barn we could photograph, please call the
museum at 218-879-1938. Our "Barns of Carlton County - 2017" calendar
is available for sale at the CCHS museum at 406 Cloquet Avenue in Cloquet MN. The
museum is open 5 days a week, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9 am to 4 pm.
