The Madison Historic Barn Tour weekend, July 11 & 12, 2014 is here! Due to the large number of advanced tickets sold, the Friday night talk by Bob Cottrell has been moved to Noyes Hall at the Madison Elementary School.

With 7 wonderful old 18th and 19th century barns on the Saturday Tour, including E.E. Cummings’ Joy Farm, and a wonderful and informative speaker Friday night, the weekend promises to be a great time. A list of the other forty plus Madison barns over 100 years old will be available for those who want to do more independent exploring.

Browse the Barn themed Art Show, purchase barn notecards and photo sketches, or place a bid on a photo or professional work of art in oil or watercolor at our Silent Auction.

Don’t miss Bob Cottrell’s entertaining talk and discussion of 18th and 19th century New England Barns on Friday night at 7pm at the Madison Elementary School. Bob’s talk is included in the price of the Barn Tour. Tickets are $20 per person and will be sold Friday night and Saturday morning.

The Barn Tour starts at the Madison Library, 1895 Village Road and runs from 10am to 4pm on Saturday July 12th. Bag lunches will be available for sale. Bring a blanket and buy a Barn Tour Bag Lunch to enjoy at one of our Town Beaches or in the garden at the Library.
