The Pauld­ing County Fair­grounds may soon have some new barns.

Work is under­way to replace the barns that house the poul­try, sheep, goats and swine. An anony­mous $100,000 match­ing dona­tion has been given toward the $250,000 project which will really help the efforts.

The three build­ings will each be gain­ing hun­dreds of square feet under cur­rent plans. The cur­rent barns total 14,150 square feet. Cur­rently, one barn houses poul­try, while another struc­ture houses the hogs, sheep and goats on the grounds. The new barns will be 1,400 square feet larger than the exist­ing build­ings.

The orig­i­nal goal was to have them for the fair in 2015, but with the upfront dona­tion, that has jump-started things. The old barns are about 140 years old.
