From Provincetown to Woods Hole, barns in the English and New England styles dot the landscape of Cape Cod's fifteen townships. Over 340 beautiful color photos display these fascinating structures to their best advantage, including many colorful details. Wooden and stone barns alike appear here, dating from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. They were built for sheltering animals, grain, cranberries, strawberries, turnips, and asparagus. Cape Cod's only full-sized nineteenth century stone barn is included. The text provides a brief introduction to each of the townships as well as fascinating insights into each of the barns displayed. Architects, Cape Codders, and aficionados of the agrarian lifestyle will find this book entrancing.
