Some new barn work
Tobacco was once the king of crops in this area. When that market virtually disappeared, the Christmas tree industry took its place. What you see here is a tobacco drying barn. There are very few of these purpose-built structures remaining. Some were converted to other uses, but the bulk of them were torn down. While this one is dilapidated, it remains one of those few who survived. I really wanted to give you a full broadside view of it but circumstances prohibited that. This barn is about 100 feet long.
Some stuff I come across baffles me a bit.....this is one of those cases.
They've had a lot of rain up here over the summer. Trying to get the best shot of this place, I stepped in a grass-covered bog and sank up to my knees.
