(Recorded for the Nevada Historical Society Docent Council and Newcomers and Neighbors of Reno-Sparks)
Jack Hursh presents Northern Nevada’s historic barn architecture with his 1995-2005 photographs. This was a period of rapid development in the Reno area, so most of the barns in the images that Jack shows were displaced by new development. The focus of Jack's photography is large timber framed barns dating back to circa 1860s when large ranches in the area were producing goods for the Virginia City market.
Jack Hursh is a fourth-generation Nevadan, an award winning photographer, influenced by the desire to preserve images reflecting the heritage of Nevada.
