Tobacco Sheds: Vanishing Treasures in the Connecticut River Valley, Hardback Book

Tobacco Sheds: Vanishing Treasures in the Connecticut River Valley Hardback


In recent years, over one thousand tobacco sheds have disappeared from the "Tobacco Valley." This important book systematically catalogues tobacco sheds from Putney, Vermont, to Portland, Connecticut, a span of just over one hundred miles.

The photographs capture the beauty of these unique farm buildings and serve as a valuable record for these endangered barns.

The text offers the agricultural history of each town, helping to connect sheds to their own unique region of New England.

In addition, the book reinforces the need for preserving one of New England's most unusual farm structures.

Many sheds in the Connecticut River Valley are still used to dry tobacco leaves that will wrap some of the world's most expensive cigars, but, sadly, some are being left to slowly deteriorate over time or are being torn down to make way for development.

This book will be treasured by cigar smokers and architectural historians and preservationists alike.
