One of a series of images taken in and around my hometown.

The Normandy Dairy buildings located on the Berry College campus in Rome, Georgia. The spire-topped buildings have red-tiled roofs over white-painted brick and resemble those often found in the French countryside.

The dairy was built by Berry College students in the 1930s with funding from Henry Ford, President Herbert Hoover, and others. Years later the dairy moved to another location on campus and these brick and timber buildings sat in a state of disuse until Truett Cathy of Chick-fil-A, through his WinShape Foundation, gave these buildings a second chance at a new life.

Today the dairy complex serves as a conference center known as the WinShape Retreat. The original structures – from milking barns to silos – have now been cleaned and rehabilitated. In the old milking barn the tile shines and wood gleams in its new service as a beautiful dining hall. The calf barn is a marvelous reception hall and welcome center.

A wonderful example of preservation, the original architecture remains intact and care was taken not to compromise the historic buildings when modern systems were added.
