Barns of Old Milton County

 
9781937565152: Barns of Old Milton County

Barns stand as landmarks of American history and as testaments to a time when hard work, perseverance and a simple handshake were the basis of human relationships. We owe a great deal to those early Americans who left us tangible evidence of their lives and to their modern counterparts who work to preserve our old barns or who add modern new barns to the landscape. Author/photographer Robert Meyers embarked on a two-year quest to document some of the oldest remaining historic barns in an area once known as Old Milton County, Georgia, a region with its own rich history. He also featured newer barns and the magnificent horse facilities which, after all, will be the historic barns of tomorrow. This book is a fascinating series of profiles of fifty barns introduced by more than 200 photographs and complemented with fascinating details of some of the bygone treasures and timeless beauties in the beautiful Georgia countryside.

Review:

Historic barns are an important connection to rural American life in a simpler age. This book is a wonderful appreciation of these charming structures and the stories they tell about Georgia s agricultural past. --Stephanie K. Meeks, President, National Trust for Historic Preservation

Old barns might be disappearing, but their beauty and histories are now captured for future generations, thanks to Meyers insistence on telling their priceless stories.... Meyers is a true artist, capturing the personalities of all his rustic subjects. --Veronica Buckman, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Novelist Thomas Wolf famously said, You can t go home again, but Bob Meyers has done just that, and with great success. After careers in government and industry, he accidently returned to his North Georgia roots and was captivated by heritage barns and saddened by their rapid disappearance. The result is a handsome volume on the Barn Rich Georgia Piedmont, its people and traditional rural life. Go home with Bob Meyers and enjoy the stunning history of Bygone Treasures and Timeless Beauties: Barns of Old Milton County. --Charles Leik, President, National Barn Alliance
