Mason’s Barns -  Jim Mulvany, Board member
MI Barn Preservation Network
Michigan Barns are featured in our June History Program. Jim Mulvaney, a former City of Mason councilmember and Michigan Barn Preservation Network board member, will present on “Mason Barns” at the Mason Area Historical Society general meeting on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Mason Family Eye Care and Fiedler Insurance.
Barns and farms have been critical to our community and state development since before the time of statehood. Their presence continues, as does the rehabilitation and adapted use of barns, to serve the needs of Michigan citizens and communities. Individuals interested in writing, history, photography, archaeology, and architecture brought Michigan barns into the limelight during the late 1980s and early ‘90s exploring and sharing the significance of Michigan barns in the public and academic sectors, leading to the establishment of the Michigan Barn Preservation Network in 1996.
Since the Mason museum follows all current health guidelines, seating will be limited. Attendees are asked to wear masks if not immunized and to maintain social distancing. Information on how to access the meeting by Zoom is below and in a post on the Society's Facebook page. Before the program, be sure to check out their new multimedia exhibit “From Mason to…” featuring prominent people in history who got their start in the Mason community.
