  • Bartlett had its beginnings as a rural, farm community, and there were working farms near the commercial center of the village. The Tatge Avenue barn, which is included in the annual "These Walls Can Talk" exhibit, is the very last survivor of this agrarian past.

A key feature of this exhibit are the six buildings the Bartlett Historical Society will honor with a plaque noting the year they were built for owners to affix to the building.

The plaguing ceremony will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 15, during the village board meeting, which will be preceded by a reception at the gallery from 5:30-6:45 p.m.

All are welcome to attend this free reception with refreshments and to visit with the owners, photographers and artists featured in the exhibit.
