This is Jim Bales Barn built in the late 1800’s. His place was bordered by split-rail fence on 2 sides and a stone wall back of the barn.The Roaring Fork bordered on one side. The barn was the activity center of the farm. The animals that were crucial to making it day to day lived here. The tools used were stored here as well as winter fodder for the livestock. Those passing thru might sometimes get water an feed for their animals earning the owner some spare income. This is located on the Roaring Fork Nature Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains and is an example of early Appalachia life.
