The exhibit is just a sampling from the work of LaVerne Black and Town of Neversink Historian Carol Smythe to document old buildings that were being lost to the ravages of disuse and time. The photographs were purposely taken in black and white rather than color. “This let the viewer focus on the detail of the photograph more than if they were distracted by the beauty of color” said Smythe. “LaVerne’s creativity turned each photo into much more than just a recording of a past time. Her artistry enhances each photo.”

The photographer and historian felt the need to preserve the history of smaller barn buildings such as sap houses, sheep sheds, and chicken coops. “Many times I have returned again to a favorite barn or old abandoned house,” said Black, “finding some had either been removed or fallen to the ravages of time and neglect. The importance of preserving our agricultural heritage began to take shape in my mind and my art.”
