Idaho Heritage Barns

Idaho Heritage Barns

The Idaho Heritage Barns register has been established with barns and agricultural outbuildings that are already listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Additional barns can be recorded on a streamlined data form. The modified form is available on the website and includes illustrations of architectural features and terminology for easy use in recording the structures, as well as who to contact for for technical assistance. You can help by downloading and filling out the form for barns in your county.
