John Hammer, President of the McHenry County Historical Barn Preservation Association, is seeking Grafton and Dorr barn lovers for the fall tour. Here’s his pitch to folks who are already members. I’m told it’s OK to share with non-members now.
The McHenry County Barn Tour is an all day event where three coach buses venture in to McHenry County’s countryside to see the magnificent barns of our county. This year the tour will feature the barns located in two townships – Grafton & Dorr. The tour date is October 10, 2009.
As a member and supporter of the McHenry County Historical Barn Preservation Association, you will have first preference to enjoy the barn tour before it is offered to the general public.
There are 150 seats available and will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. The tour usually fills within 2-3 weeks, so if you are interested I would recommend acting immediately. If you are interested in going on the barn tour please print the attached information and Registration Form, detach and fill out the Registration Form portion, and mail it in with your payment to register for the tour. Also, please note that you can save on the tour by renewing your membership if it is not current.
The barn show is on Route 173 between Hebron and Greenwood Road. It will not be on the tour.
