Spencer, Mary Ann
THE BARNS OF THE NORTH FORK
NY: The Quantuck Lane Press, 2005

First edition. Quarto. 176 pp; color photographs throughout. Hardcover with dustjacket. In a survey sponsored by the Old House Society in Cutchogue, Mary Ann Spencer spent the last few years making a comprehensive inventory and photographing more than six hundred barns on the North Fork. Two hundred of them are still in use, although their fate is by no means certain. Here in their glory (and sometimes less than that) are the most interesting barns,which reveal, among other things, their functional development, their often haphazard fenestration, their soft patina of age, and their fit in the landscape. Spencer’s complete survey forms a second part of this book, which provokes feelings of nostalgia and raises our fears for the future of these wonderful structures.
