Conservancy Barn with possible historic relevance.

by Anna Warner
(Owosso, MI, Shiawassee)

Hi! My name is Anna Warner and I am an intern and the DeVries Nature Conservancy is Owosso Michigan.

I have not received an answer back to whether the barn at hand is historical or not but I was wondering if the rules were different for a non-profit conservancy.

I am looking into grants and information about the restoration of a barn on the property of The DeVries Nature Conservancy and I am trying to find any information possible. So if anyone has any helpful thoughts, sites, or organizational names please feel free to email me at [email protected]

Thank you for all of your help in moving forward on this project.

Hi Anna,

I would recomend emailing the Michigan Barn Preservation Network. They may have an answer for you. Many of them are subscribed to this website and I was hoping that one of them would answer your question here.

You can find their website here.

They have their annual conference coming up in about a month. You may want to check that out as well.
