When we were in Grainger County for the Tomato Festival, this barn caught my eye. Recent high winds had lifted a couple of metal roofing sheets and exposed the interior to the elements. Otherwise the barn appeared to be well-maintained. But this is what usually spells the beginning of the end for barns in the region. No longer contributing to the family's income, old barns are allowed to remain exposed to the weather. Eventually they rot and collapse. It would be a shame if this barn were left to that fate.
