Wayne barns: Beautiful symbols of bygone days

Documenting a disappearing way of life

By SANDY LONG

WAYNE COUNTY, PA—What do a library administrator (Molly Rodgers), an arts professional (Tamara Murray), a barn restorer (Paul Weatherall), two photographers (Michel Legrand and Robert Townsend), a retired farmer’s daughter (Linda Dix Lee) and a humanities scholar (Roger D. Abrahams) have in common? A love of old barns and a reverence for what they represent: the indomitable spirit of America and its agricultural heritage.

The striking, if sere, structures seem to symbolize a way of life that is uniquely American. “The old barn represents our shared history, with an emotional, not just an economic element. It’s a symbol of what we don’t want to see disappear, but indeed, are at great risk of losing,” said Rodgers.

That was the message from Dr. Herman Goldfarb at a demonstration by about 25 residents in front of The Chapin Estate on Route 55 in Bethel on August 4. Unlike the last demonstration, which took place at the secluded location at the controversial gate on Town Road 62 more than a year ago, this time the demonstrators gathered where passing motorists would see them.
