The Iowa Barn Foundation: Helping to preserve Iowa's agricultural heritage one barn at a time.



Barns and Materials for Sale or Donation

The Iowa Barn Foundation would like to see every barn and historical agricultural building preserved. Sometimes this is not always possible. Old barns and other structures are sometimes no longer wanted or are too deteriorated to economically repair. Still others collapse due to severe storms, neglect, and the ravages of time. Your old barn can live on, however, when you donate or sell its pieces to other Iowans who are restoring their barns.

We encourage anyone planning to dismantle a barn to carefully reconsider their decision. Each year, over 1000 barns disappear forever from the Iowa landscape. Barns are precious historical buildings that are becoming very scarce in much of the state. In many parts of the midwest, barns that were once a common sight along the highways have disappeared entirely. If at all possible, please do not tear down, dismantle, or sell your barn!

Iowa Barn Foundation members who are restoring their barns are always looking for vintage beams, siding, hardware, cupolas, lightning rods, etc. to help complete their barn restoration project. Your donation or sale of barn materials helps preserve the environment by recycling precious and often irreplaceable materials, and enables your barn to live on, if only in part.
