2019 Barn Grant Program




This year’s 2019 Barn Preservation Award was presented to Bob and Patricia Rodgers, owners of the Stone of Scone Barn between Littlestown and McSherrystown. After launching a full-scale restoration effort in 2016, the Rodgers hope to share the barn as an event venue, hosting retreats, seminars, and non-profit gatherings going forward. 

With a new lease on life, the Stone of Scone Barn will stand for at least another two hundred years – thanks to the Rodgers for their tremendous contribution to the historic fabric of Adams County! Something we can all be very proud of!










     The historic Crawford Barn, not far from the Gettysburg Battlefield, has been carefully restored and maintained over the last several decades by Gabor and Elizabeth Boritt. In 2018, it received a HGAC Barn Preservation Grant  to help rebuild one of the barn's walls.
