SEE 7 STATES FrOM ROCK CITY atop LOOKOUT MT.

Oddly, the r in FrOM is not capitalized.

Located on Highway U.S. 31E in Hart Co. Ky.

This barn was immortalized 20 years ago as #2 in a series of collectible plates by Ray Day in his "Once upon a Barn" series. It looks like there were some creative liberties taken with the trees

  1. According to mathematical "science" of Pythagoras theorem for Earth curvature, it should be impossible to see all but one of these states. North Carolina at 50 miles would be 1,666 feet below the horizon. South Carolina at 80 miles would be 4,266 feet below the horizon. Kentucky/Virginia at 120 miles would be 9,600 feet below the horizon.
