This was one of the nicest barns we saw in Kentucky. Even the fences were well kept up! We noticed that a lot of the barns there had the unusual peak off the front and there were a lot of black barns, which I've never seen here in Michigan.
This is painted on the side of a building we visited in Nashville. It's the old Marathon Automobile building, which is now the site of Antique Archeology, a store run by Mike Wolfe of American Pickers on the History Channel. This building is beautiful, with old wood floors and brick walls, but the exterior is also beautiful and I loved this painting on the side of it.
We've just returned from a wonderful trip. Our son is in the army and just came back from Afghanistan, after being there for a year. We went to Kentucky for the homecoming event which was very moving. As we drove around the area, I was really enjoying seeing the barns. Many barns seem to be unique to the area they are in. This barn was very close to the army base. I loved the color and the vines growing on it. I also like the little cupolas.
