The 2018 Annual Meeting will be held July 21, 2018 at the Dull’s Tree Farm located between Lebanon and Frankfort, Indiana. Registration begins at 8:30 am; program starts at 9:00; and concludes at 4:00 pm.
The meeting will take place in a newly reconstructed heritage barn that was moved to the property from Carroll County. You’ll view beautiful iconic heritage barns from across the state and learn more about why it is important to be good stewards. For barn owners, you’ll learn more about the Heritage Barn Tax Deduction and how to go about claiming this tax savings in your county.
Barns have been on the move this past year and we’ll learn about three such barns that have moved to new homes – one across the road, another to the next county, and one to Australia. During the Annual Meeting you’ll learn more about what IBF has to offer and what you can do to get involved. You’ll also learn about the two recipients of the Mauri Williamson grants and their plans to conserve their barns. The day wraps up with the story of the Dull Family and why they chose to invest not only in their old barns, but to move another heritage barn, and several log cabins, to their property. Artists and photographers will be on hand to display their work. Various items will be for sale. Contractors and barn experts will be available to answer your barn repair questions so be sure to bring good quality photographs of your barn.
Overnight Lodging is available in nearby Lebanon, about 9 miles from Dull's Tree Farm. Options include Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Inn & Suites, and Motel 6.
This 1888 timber frame barn serves as one of the central buildings on the farm.
You will be able to enjoy lunch and breaks overlooking the beautiful Christmas Tree Farm.
