The Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce has announced that calls about the Barn Tour of Wallowa County continue to pour in.
That tour was featured in a barn tour book in 2000 and 2002 and due to the continued interest, the Chamber has identified bringing back the barn tour as a 2017 goal.
Cheryl Coughlan is heading the project. Coughland is both the Chamber’s Arts Director and the Executive Director of the Josephy Center for Arts & Culture.
The Barn Tour Committee that has been assembled has two goals: to add a free tear-off map for visitors to use in a self-guided car tour and print a new edition of the barn book that will be a keepsake.
The book will include historical information and a few new barns.
The tear sheet will be completed in 2017, and the reprinting of the third edition barn book will be completed in 2018.
Coughlan invites any Wallowa County ranchers with an interest in having their barn in the tour to contact the chamber (541) 426- 4622 and talk to Vicki Searles.
