Help us reach our community and financial goal through "A Storied Barn"
Vote for us! Donate to help us reach our goal.
We are participating in This Place Matters, National Trust of Canada, crowd funding competition to raise funds for the restoration and rehabilitation of the Klippenstein housebarn. Specifically, funds raised will be used for the siding of the barn which will come from old utility poles, milled and then cut with a special blade to recreate the look of the original siding.
The barn of the Klippenstein housebarn is in need of restoration and rehabilitation. This unqiue building, nearly as old as Canada, holds many stories of the past, present and we hope will be a storied building long into the future.
You can vote every 24 hours.
