Amish Tin Barn Stars

Amish Tin Barn Stars

The tradition of the barn star in America can be traced back to the 1700's, and to at least the 1820's in Pennsylvania. Barn stars were most popular after the Civil War. On many older American barns, particularly German farms, one could see a large decoration in the shape of a star mounted on the face of the barn. Sometimes they were just aesthetic, but sometimes they represented the trademark of a specific barn builder. It is our understanding the original star shape was a three-pointed star but has changed throughout the years. Colors had significance with Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch barn paintings. These folk art designs, many of which were star shaped, were painted directly onto each end of the barn, and date back to the 1850�s.

Green - Growth, fertility, success in things and ideas that grow.

The barn star composition has changed over the years. At first they were built directly into the barn. Later the stars were crafted from wood as a separate piece.
