The corn crib at the Tipton place is an example of a double pen corn crib, larger than average, and having a driveway through the center. This not only provided a way to conveniently unload the wagon but allowed for extra air to flow through the crib. The hewn log sides were left with open spaces to allow air to circulate through the corn, both allowing it to dry initially and helping it to stay dry…The roofing is known as shackes, which are wooden shingles usually split from leftover parts of logs ….Behind the crib is the edge of a cantalever barn unique to this part of the country……This shot was taken on Cades Cove Loop Road in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
