“I think I have the owner’s blessing to photograph this barn,” I thought as I approached the tall structure visible from both US 60 and I-64 in Carter County. “He may have been talking about the one across the road. I hope I’m not trespassing.”
With many unusual (to me) features including an aging TV antenna at the peak, this one has clearly served many seasons in the production of tobacco – once the traditional “money crop” of this area.
