*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*

*September Skagit Topics: Heritage Barns *

La Conner – If you own an old barn in Skagit County, are you aware of
the *Heritage
Barn Preservation Initiative*? A program of the Washington State Department
of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, this initiative established the
Heritage Barn Register, a statewide list of historically significant barns.
Owners of historic barns over fifty years old that retain a significant
degree of historic integrity can nominate their barn to be designated as a
Heritage Barn and be included in the statewide register. Moreover, owners
of designated Heritage Barns are eligible to apply for matching grants to
assist with barn stabilization and rehabilitation projects.



The Skagit County Historical Museum is hosting a *free *workshop on
Wednesday, September 2 from 6 to 7:30 pm for barn owners wishing to learn
more about *Heritage Barn Preservation Initiative *and to assist barn
owners in filling out both the *Heritage Barn Nomination Form *as well as
the *Heritage Barn Grant Application*. Chris Moore, Executive Director with
the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, will be on hand to answer
questions and discuss the process for completing program documents. The
next deadline for nominating a barn to the Heritage Barn Register is
September 25, 2015, with the deadline to submit applications requesting
barn rehabilitation grant funds set for October 21, 2015. Come join us to
learn more about this wonderful opportunity and the application process.



The Skagit County Historical Museum is located at 501 S 4th Street, at the
top of the hill in La Conner. For more information, call 360-466-3365 or
visit www.skagitcounty.net/museum.
