Discover a valuable piece of the Flagstaff Region's rich agricultural heritage with our just-released coffee-table book!

Titled "Heritage Barns of Flagstaff: Volume 1," this full-colour hard-cover publication features nearly two dozen barns from our online database at: https://heritagebarnsofflagstaff.com.

Over the summers of 2016 and 2017, university student Sydney Hampshire spearheaded our ongoing Heritage Barns Project, which aims to bolster the understanding and appreciation of rural agricultural history right here in Flagstaff County. In two summers, she documented 60 barns throughout the Flagstaff Region for the online database. Before returning to school this past fall, Hampshire compiled this first printed volume of local heritage barns.

The books are now available through the Flagstaff County office for $30 each. Call Jenalee at 780-384-4152 or Kerri at 780-384-4150 to order your copy today!

A CLASSIC:

Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.

NOTHING…. so beautiful as the big spaces. Steering wheel hand-wavers…salt of the earth folks that are rock of civility. Nothing so beautiful as the empty…in prairie thunderstorm’s electrified sky….in the dance of sun-kissed canola in a breeze. Things resilient in the tug of war with life made complex in a hectic society. In oil and gas, agriculture, and land-based recreation activity that feels free, lies the ingredients for life authentically lived. We are rooted in land and people…seeking simplicity amidst the complexity of life. Flagstaff – full of classics.
