Used to be a Rock City barn

Used to be a Rock City barn

Although you can't tell by looking at it, this used to be a Rock City barn, according to the book about Rock City barns by David Jenkins. It appears on page 156.

This is now called Murfreesboro Road, but it is also Old U.S. 70S/TN1. This used to be the main road between Murfeesboro and Woodbury, TN. (Or on a larger scale, the Memphis to Bristol Highway, the state's first important cross state road.) It is located in Cannon County about a mile east of Readyville.

When this was still the main highway, this barn was a great location for an advertisement barn. The road goes uphill and the top of this barn is seen not too far in the distance directly in front of streetbefore it curves to the left of the barn. The large roof of the barn is directly facing the street before the curve.

The Current U.S. 70S runs parallel to this street about a mile away. Like most of the newer highways, The John Bragg Hwy is a straiter four-lane divided highway.
