Here's our wish list:
1) Age: pre-1820 or 1840-1870 (to the best of your knowledge, historical documentation, oral history)
2) Type: anything that is not a barn (cabin, house, smokehouse, mill, cabin masquerading as a barn, etc.). I repeat, no more barns please!
To learn more about what types of structures qualify for tree-ring dating, please visit our FAQ page.
If you know of a structure that meets these criteria, please let us know! We need 7 more structures in Pocahontas County by spring 2016.
If your structure is chosen to be included in the Historic Timbers Project, we offer you:
1) free tree-ring dating!
2) final technical report of our investigation
3) an opportunity to hang out with the HTP!
Thanks Pocahontas County. We look forward to working with you!
