Preface to the Manitoulin Barns project

Managed to complete the Manitoulin Barns project in March of 2013. From December 2012 travelled every plowed road on Manitoulin, in a three month period, looking for barns and barns down. The results make up the Manitoulin Barns section on with 552 barns standing and 123 barns down. They are divided into 23 areas of towns, townships and first nation territories. A guessimate of barns not seen from the plowed roads would result in another 10 barns standing and 50 barns down. One day, this may get verified. The breakdown of barns standing is as follows: Dawson five, Robinson twelve, Sheshegwaning zero, Zhibaahaasing zero, Burpee twenty-five, Mills thirty-one, Gordon thirty-nine, Barrie Island thirteen, Gore Bay four, Allan twenty-nine, Billings twenty-five, McChigeeng two, Bidwell forty-one, Howland fifty-three, Aundeck Omni Kaning zero, Sheguiandah eighteen, Sheguiandah FN zero, Assiginack fifty, Wikwemikong fifteen, Tehkummah forty-three, Carnarvon sixty-three, Sandfield twenty-five, Campbell fifty-nine. The top four are Carnarvon 63, Campbell 59, Howland 53, Assiginack 50. Townships, museums and other interested parties are welcome to download the pictures to create their own records. It would appear that the majority of standing barns are not being used so it will not be long before many of them are down to join the ruins section.
