Heritage Barns of Indiana

The Heritage Barns of Indiana Project is an on-going painting project by Gwen Gutwein. She is striving to do paintings of at least two old and/or historic barns from each of Indiana’s 92 counties. Along with the paintings, Gwen collects each barn’s distinctive history.

View barn paintings by county.

Currently we are working toward publication of several books featuring all of the 198 HERITAGE BARN paintings. (All of which can be viewed on this web site.)

The books will include a painting of each historic barn as well as the captivating history and stories on the barns.  Beautiful and fascinating photographs will also grace the pages; some are historic while others feature the unique old hinges and latches still embellishing these historic structures.

The books will be an adventure worth traveling time and time again.

The Heritage Barns of Indiana Project has been honored as a Bicentennial Legacy Project
