Bygone Treasures and Timeless Beauties: The Barns of Old Milton County by Robert Meyers
Barns stand as landmarks of American history and as testaments to a
time when hard work, perseverance and a simple handshake were the basis
of human relationships. We owe a great deal to those early Americans who
left us tangible evidence of their lives and to their modern
counterparts who work to preserve our old barns or who add modern new
barns to the landscape.
Author/photographer Robert Meyers embarked on a two-year quest to
document some of the oldest remaining historic barns in an area once
known as Old Milton County, Georgia, a region with its own rich history.
He also featured newer barns and the magnificent horse facilities
which, after all, will be the historic barns of tomorrow. This book is a
fascinating series of profiles of fifty barns introduced by more than
200 photographs and complemented with fascinating details of some of the
bygone treasures and timeless beauties in the beautiful Georgia
