The Barns of East Granby: Our Agricultural Heritage, is available for sale at the East Granby town clerk's office. It can also be purchased by using the on-line order form.  Authored by two longtime East Granby residents, Betty Guinan and Ted Holly, the book features 269 photos over 130 pages.  The text includes brief histories of local farms with descriptions of their barns and other outbuildings.  

Many of the buildings were altered over the years 
as agriculture changed from general husbandry to specialization and eventually to the demise of farming as it once was. Today, many barns are cluttered with old farm implements and other remnants from the past.   Others have been converted to uses their former owners would never have envisioned.

The book also contains a Glossary of barn terms. Also see Table of Contents.
