N is for NO MORE
When we moved to this area two years ago I immediately spotted this piece of Americana sitting not two miles from our new home. Although neglected and seemingly forgotten she remained magnificent. She also stood as a daily reminder of a time long ago when families traveled the two lane highways in search of adventure. And everyone in the South knew about Rock City.
This barn, which sat on a hill overlooking highway 79 into Clarksville, was one of less than 100 barns left to lure us to Rock City, a tourist attraction outside Chattanooga.
Sadly, the barn was demolished last year and replaced with a MacMansion.
Progress? Some would say in todays economy this was a sign that the times are getting better.
I think it means that the times are all about a buck.
