HCC program wins award for farm survey

The Harford County Historic Preservation Committee recently presented a 2006 Preservation Project Award to Harford Community College's Building Preservation and Restoration Program for its Barn and Outbuilding Survey.

The survey addresses and supports the Farm Security Act of 2001, signed into law May 13, 2002, which contains the Historic Barn Preservation Program designed to preserve and restore America's unique and rapidly disappearing historical agricultural buildings.

The college project, which began in 2004, has grown to include more than 34 completed surveys and 100 windshield surveys. Program director Rhonda Deeg said HCC implemented a countywide Barn and Outbuilding Survey to record Harford County's dwindling agricultural rural properties.

Twenty-seven students, 4 student interns, volunteers and an instructor have photographed, measured, drawn and researched the county's historic structures.
