The goal of the Appalachian Barn Alliance is capture Madison County, NC, agricultural history through photos, oral histories and architectural details of significant barns in Madison County. To share this with the public, the ABA has created tours: one type is a simple self-guided driving tour by geographic region targeted for the local residents and tourists. You can download tour information (see below) or pick up the brochures at any of the visitor centers in each of the three Madison County towns or at the NC Welcome Center on Interstate 26. Check their websites for locations and hours. The other type is a guided tour which is led by the ABA researcher / historian at scheduled times each month, but also available to suit your personal schedule.
