Tax incentive program seeks to save NH's barns

The town of Bath has become the latest New Hampshire community to employ as state tax incentive program designed to encourage historic barn preservation.

Under state law, towns and cities are authorized to grant property tax relief to barn owners who can demonstrate the public benefit of preserving their barn or other older farm buildings and agree to maintain them throughout a minimum 10-year preservation easement.
