volunteer Lake Hosts for the 2016 season. Lake Hosts
inspect boats going into and out of Northwood Lake for invasive
species. If you enjoy meeting people, spending time

Northwood Historical Society Program
Are you the proud owner or just interested in the preservation
of old barns? The Northwood Historical Society is pleased
to sponsor a program by John Porter on “The History of
Agriculture as Told by Barns” on May 17, 2016, 7:00 PM at the

The evolution of barn architecture tells the story of New

English style, to Yankee style, to gambrel and then pole barns
to accommodate the changing agriculture. This
presentation will be a chronological walk through time, with
photo illustrations of barns around the state that are examples
of these eras of agricultural history.

graduated from UNH with a BS Degree in Animal Science; then went
on to obtain his Master’s Degree from Cornell University in
Animal Nutrition and Farm Management; and later earned another
Master’s Degree from Bob Jones University in Education
Administration. From 1974 to 2006, he served as a Dairy
Specialist for UNH Cooperative Extension. He authored the
book “Preserving Old Barns,” was editor and contributing author
