by Daniel Fink (Author)

From the earliest log barns, hand hewn and no bigger than sheds, to the huge truss-framed Wells barns with their cathedrallike interiors, barns were for nearly 200 years of central importance to the men and women of the Genesee Country. Photographer and historian Daniel Fink has illuminated the social, economic, and architectural history of these barns using contemporary records and original photographs. Here are cobblestone barns, unique to this region; Gothic and Italianate barns, elegantly filigreed to match their owners' houses; polygonal barns; Greek Revival barns; and tobacco barns with distinctive multiple louvered doors.
