Enjoy a weekend of Iowa barnstorming

The Iowa Barn Foundation is holding a barn tour June 22 and 23. The barns will be open for self-guided tours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

This year’s tour will be held in the Waterloo area with barns in southern Black Hawk and northern Tama counties. There will be 11 historic barns open to tour inside and out, and the owner will be on hand to share each structure’s interesting story and answer questions.

The self-guided tour is free, made possible by the foundation’s member donors. A Saturday lunch will be offered for $15, and advanced reservations are recommended. Lunch will be served Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Frost Barn, 1745 E Eagle Road, Waterloo. The catered lunch will include a pork loin sandwich, cheesy potatoes, baked beans, cookie and drink (soda/water).

Lunch reservations can be made until June 1 online at iowabarnfoundation.org/product/2024-spring-lunch or by mailing a check made out to Iowa Barn Foundation to Wayne Frost, 1745 E Eagle Road, Waterloo, IA 50701.
