Historic Barn Tour

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In October 2014, the Hancock Historical Museum’s Historic Barn Tour was awarded the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office’s Public Education & Awareness Award for preservation excellence. Ohio History Connection CEO, Burt Logan, has recognized the Historic Barn Tour as a “model program for the state.” In 2018, the Historic Barn Tour was honored to be a recipient of the Scenic Ohio Award. The annual Scenic Awards program recognizes and honors Ohio’s scenic places as well as the organizations and agencies making contributions to the improvement, conservation and preservation of our scenic resources. Now on a biennial schedule, we are proud to present the 2019 Historic Barn Tour!

This self-guided tour showcases five histoic barns, dating from the 1840s to the early 1900s around the Mt. Blanchard community. Each barn tells a unique story about the farm on which it sits, and the families who have owned it. In addition to learning more about these impressive structures, guests to the tour will enjoy a wide array of activities, including antique machinery and blacksmithing demonstrations, local food vendors, timber-framing and hewing demonstrations, and live music with the classic country band, East of Cheyenne and the Dulcimer Gatherin’. Spend a day enjoying the sights, tastes, and sounds of our county’s legacy.

All presale tickets are $10 and on sale now at the Hancock Historical Museum and sponsor locations. You can also purchase tickets online. Tickets will also be available at any of the barns on the day of the tour for $10 for members, $15 nonmembers. Children 16 and under are free.
