The Barns of East Granby: Our Architectural
This is book is the most accessible and, perhaps, the most extensive barn survey undertaken by any local group. It provides both photographs and text describing the barns on more than 40 properties in the town of East Granby. Sadly, a number of barns have been demolished since this work was first published.

Fairfield Historical Society Survey of Barns
The Society has created a database of barns based on documentary evidence of their existence. They have yet to confirm that these buildings still exist through fieldwork.
Historic Sturbridge Village
In 1976-78 two researchers from Old Sturbridge Village performed a survey of barns in four communities in the northeast corner of the state - Canterbury, Pomfret, Thompson, Woodstock. The 273 identified barns were documented with photographs and notes. This information is available at the Old Sturbridge Village Library.
