Guided Van Tours of Historic Barns

Tours offered from Spring through Fall Annually

Treat yourself and some friends and family to a closeup view of several barns in the Mars Hill area of Madison County as well as many stories about these and other barns that you will drive by. These “Fabulous! and Wonderfully narrated” monthly-scheduled van tours with our tour guide—Taylor Barnhill– are slower-paced and spread over 3 hours to allow you to see the barns in a more intimate way.
