County farm bureau marks centennial with barn painting

| May 17, 2019

COSHOCTON – Being 100 years old is something to celebrate and the Coshocton County Farm Bureau has found a unique way to commemorate their organization’s centennial.

Barns have been a staple of the countryside for generations and one local barn will be getting a makeover thanks to The Barn Artist, Scott Hagan. He will emblazon Ohio Farm Bureau’s centennial logo on a barn located on the Coshocton County Fairgrounds.

“This year is also the 100th anniversary of Ohio State University Extension in our county, so we have multiple reasons to celebrate and we thought the fairgrounds would be the ideal place to highlight that partnership,” said Bob Buxton, a Coshocton County Farm Bureau board member. “The barn we chose is one of the oldest buildings on the grounds and it has great exposure for folks to enjoy as they drive by all year long.”

This barn, which faces Seventh Street in Coshocton, will be one in a series of primly located barns that will get the vintage OFBF mark.

“This is a great opportunity for county farm bureaus and their members to honor the heritage and success of our organization over the past 100 years,” said Adam Sharp, executive vice president of Ohio Farm Bureau. “Using these treasured barns as a platform will help in sharing the message about the deep history of Farm Bureau’s past and the strength of our future.”
