Dear Editor:

I am embarking on a photo project I'm calling Pennsylvania Barn Stories. I want to photograph barns and tell their stories. I don't want to prejudge what barn stories are worth telling, but the possibilities include architecturally and historically significant barns, barns that have been in families for generations, new barns built in a different style, barns that have been converted into houses or other uses. An Amish barn raising should also be on the list.

If readers of the Times News know of any barns I might consider, please send me e-mail: bx2@psu.edu
