Horseshoe Bay Farms is now on the National Registry of Historic Places. Owner Glenn Timmerman is faced with figuring out the master plan of what's next in preserving the structures.
Horseshoe Bay was given its status on the state and national registry in May. That followed an exacting research and submission process. The Farms are recognized for their architectural and major business impacts. Timmerman says a big part of getting the buildings on the registry has been to show the community how serious he is about preservation.
Timmerman hopes to work with a barn preservationist who can also come up with an idea for the entire complex that tells its great story and is rather self sustaining.
Timmerman also wants to involve the Egg Harbor Historical Society and considers the structures a real centerpiece for the village. He will host a presentation about the over 130 year history and preservation efforts of Horseshoe Bay Farms tomorrow. That program was met with massive demand, and is completely booked. An encore is set for August 6th.
