The mission of the Idaho Heritage Barns Register is to recognize Idahoʼs agricultural heritage and document Idahoʼs barns and agricultural buildings.

Historic barns are ever-present visual reminders of the importance of agriculture in our stateʼs history and economy. They stand on the landscape as a testament to the Idaho ideals of hard work, productivity, and connection to the land. The core of the Barns Register is to voluntarily document and preserve information about these agricultural buildings, throughout Idaho.

Land use development and the deterioration through time of many unused barns increases the importance of this task. A protocol and form for use statewide ensures consistent and complete information will be documented, resulting in a statewide Idaho Heritage Barns Register.


Please help us voluntarily document and preserve information about barns and agricultural buildings throughout Idaho. You can help by filling out and submitting our form to add your barn to the registry. We accept all submissions, anywhere in the state of Idaho.

You can either print off the form and mail it to us, or fill the form out digitally. If you do not have all the information asked on the form, then please fill it out with what you do have. It is okay if you do not know all of the information requested.
