Indiana Barns

Overview

Indiana is barn country. Beautiful, aged barns can be found tucked among bucolic fields from Valparaiso to Vincennes. Once a dominant feature of the Hoosier landscape, these evocative buildings are fast disappearing, giving way to more efficient, but less visually appealing, metal structures. Indiana Barns presents 138 of these charming rustics, drawn from the portfolio of photographer Marsha Williamson Mohr. Mohr has been photographing barns, covered bridges, and pastoral scenes for more than 20 years. Here, she...

Overview

Indiana is barn country. Beautiful, aged barns can be found tucked among bucolic fields from Valparaiso to Vincennes. Once a dominant feature of the Hoosier landscape, these evocative buildings are fast disappearing, giving way to more efficient, but less visually appealing, metal structures. Indiana Barns presents 138 of these charming rustics, drawn from the portfolio of photographer Marsha Williamson Mohr. Mohr has been photographing barns, covered bridges, and pastoral scenes for more than 20 years. Here, she showcases barns of all shapes and sizes, captured from every angle, during all four seasons, and in various states of repair and decay. Whether you have owned a barn or just admire the craftsmanship, this lively collection is sure to delight.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Whether old or new, Indiana barns are structures with character. Photographer Marsha Williamson Mohr knows that better than most: She's been snapping pictures of these rustic buildings for decades. Indiana Barns "collects" her most memorable Hoosier storehouses. Its 138 photos cover every imaginable variety: stately, freshly painted red marvels; snow covered shelters for cattle; decrepit, circular, two-story buildings high on a hill; a vast mega-barn that looks like a giant bird about to ascend. One of those books that seduces you.

The Hoosier Times
"This offering is... a record for history of what is there now and might not be in future generations. It is a fine addition to the visual record that is a critical component of the collective memory of our state." —The Hoosier Times, December 19, 2010
from the introduction

"It is so much more than the story of the buildings; it is our story, who we are and where we come from, what we brought with us and may no longer know. Every time we lose one barn we miss the opportunity to learn, to be reminded, to understand that one, critical part of our rural past." —from the introduction
