With 330 farmers leaving the business each week in America due to urbanization, new farming and building practices, and the inability to keep up with major agribusinesses, Missouri Preservation named the state’s 35,000 historic barns and homesteads as some of the historic buildings at the greatest risk of deterioration in their 2012 list of Missouri’s most endangered historic places.
