Old tobacco barns like this scatter the country side in Eastern North Carolina. Most are being reclaimed by nature like this old one nestled in the shade of several pine trees. Many southern country folk can identify with these old barns and the long summer days of work and fellowship that went under their tin roofs. It won't be to many years in the future when this will be a rare site indeed.
