Welcome to Sequoyah Country

Welcome to Sequoyah Country

This barn marks the turn to get to Sequoyah Caverns (AL 731) in Dekalb County, Alabama. This is visible from Highway U.S. 11, whcih runs from Birmingham to Chattanooga. most of the U.S. 11 traffic now would take Interstate 59, which is only a few feet from here as the road to the Caverns crosses over it.

Clark Byers, who was the famous first painter of all the Rock City Barns, when he retired from Rock City, was brought on to run Sequoyah Caverns. He painted this barn, as well as another 3 or 4 that I found in the area. He also painted the other side of this barn, which you would see when leaving the Caverns. That picture will be shown here tomorrow!

  1. As his barns fade, so does a cultural identity. We are losing our past, I think that is a tragedy...
