I found this out while I was taking pictures of a covered bridge and I was like….are they tearing it down or is it falling down? First time seeing one in this bad of condition. I still like running into things like this. You never know what you’re going to run into.

    What is a mail pouch tobacco barn?

  • Oh my, the best way I can tell you is to go to google and type those words in. I don’t know if I have enough room on here to tell all of it but to what little I can remember it was a tobacco company and all the people that raised tobacco sold to this company and they started having people put this on their barns and the barns were usually black with yellow lettering. I think for the most part I saw them in Wisconsin. This was the first one I had seen anywhere near my home and the oldest one.
