Cal Turner's barn

Cal Turner's barn

This barn is located on the family farm of Cal Turner, the deceased founder of Dollar General. This is in Brentwood, TN (Williamson County) along U.S. 31 north of Franklin. This barn is best known for the large Nativity painting which is draped on the roof every Christmastime (and preserved in storage the rest of the year.) If the family were to sell the farm, it could fetch a large amount of money being in some incredibly prime real estate area. In the background is the bottom half of the WSM 650 AM radio tower, which, when it was built in the 1930's was proclaimed as the tallest radio tower in the country.
