LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program will host a free barn preservation workshop at the Cane Hill College at 14219 College Road in Cane Hill on Saturday, October 7.

Rudy R. Christian will present a lecture on “The Value of Stewardship” at 9 a.m. that will include information on documenting barns, assessing their condition, and proactive maintenance. Following lunch, which will be provided, participants will visit three historic barns where Christian will assess their needs and maintenance priorities. Two barns are in walking distance and the third is a two-mile drive away. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and bring a chair or stool if needed.
