  • 7 Dec is delighted to cap off the 2017 Regional History Colloquium series on Thursday, December 7 with Greg Huber presenting on The Historic Barns of Southeastern Pennsylvania. For anyone who has ever admired a barn on an old country lane, this is the story of that barn and many others in Southeastern Pennsylvania, or, specifically, “the hearth,” the area east of the Susquehanna River and South of the Blue Mountains. One of the earliest-settled areas in North America, this region of the Keystone State is home to an astounding 20,000 standing barns, in various states of repair, built from the late 1700s on. Greg will discuss the primary factors that have determined the fundamental structures and appearances of the six great barn classifications. This event takes place in Ryder Hall at A social gathering and book signing begins at 4pm, followed by the presentation at 4:30pm. Free and open to the public.
