Barns symbolize the agricultural heritage of those who founded the state of Iowa. As barns are abandoned and destroyed, we lose an important tie to our past. Iowa Barn Foundation Board Member Ober Anderson will share information, photos of classic and beautiful Iowa barns, inside and out. Mr. Anderson will also be giving away a copy of a 70 page Barn Photo Book to a lucky audience member.
This joint library-Historical Society event is free and open to the public thanks to the support of West Des Moines Historical Society Members, EMC Insurance Foundation, the West Des Moines Library Friends Foundation and the Iowa Arts Council.
All Iowa Files programs will be live streamed on the West Des Moines Historical Society’s Facebook Page and all videos will be closed captioned.
