We are always looking for more content to add to our publications as well!   In addition to The Barn Door, we have also started our own blog and called it The Barn Journal in honor of all the hard work of NBA’s Past President, Charles Leik.  If you have a barn story worth sharing, please consider sending it our way with a few photographs. Preference will be given to NBA members, but we also like to reach out to new groups and individuals with similar interests.  If you are interested in submitting an article or barn preservation story to the NBA, please review our submission guidelines and contact us at for additional information regarding NBA publication policies.
