These farmers would often mount a large star-shaped decoration onto their barns. Some farmers considered the stars good luck, like a horseshoe hung above a doorway; while others viewed it as simply aesthetic and pleasing to the eye. The tradition of the barn star in America can be traced back to the 1700s, and to at least the 1870s in Pennsylvania. Barn stars were most popular after the Civil War. 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. In the last 30 years, barn stars were constructed from roofing tiles, giving them a rough finish.
Recently, since the 90s, local craftsmen have been making them from thin steel, unfinished, so they rust. The present-day Barn Star, now popular on homes of every size and shape, has come to mean an outward sign of good luck and good fortune! THEY MADE THEM INTO CHANDELIERS & THEIR SOOOO........
