b'Protecting Our Regions HistoricStructuresNational Register ofHistoric Places ListingSome of the oldest buildings in our country are locatedright here in our region, and with that comes the responsibilityto recognize and protect that architectural history.One way to do that is through listing a structure on theNational Register of Historic Places. Listings involve a rigorous process with strict criteria,and Heritage Conservancy has been called upon many times to facilitate application submissions in our area to ensure their success. In fact, Heritage Conservancy has facilitated more successful listings to this register than any other organization in Bucks County.In 2020, we proudly facilitated the listing of the John Wagner and Family Farmstead, currentlyowned by Jerry and Joanne Holum, to the National Register of Historic Places. Located along Meadows Road in Lower Saucon Township, Northampton County, the Farmstead consistsof a main two-section brick house, a large stone barn, and seven outbuildings. All of thebuildings appear to date from 1840 to 1940 and retain their architectural integrity. The main barn is truly the pice de rsistance. It is a stunning example of a StandardPennsylvania Closed Forebay style barn circa 1849.
