The barn’s wood paneled walls and track lighting are well suited for displays. Art works, or other visual material, may be installed for a single-day event or longer periods of time.

“Our group included several German- and Dutch-born members, several artists, and one craftsman experienced in building with wood. We were all enthralled with the clean beauty and creative design of each barn, Connie’s explanation of the history and development of each style, and how the barns came to The Persistence Foundation. The setting is spaciously designed and serene, in this rural community of New York that is serious about restoration of its own history.”  — Tela Zasloff
