Some Rock City barns do not change for many decades

Some Rock City barns do not change for many decades

Who Can Find the misspelled word on this barn?

This photo is way outside of Middle Tennessee, but the Rock City barns, wherever they may be, appeal to a lot of people, so I thought I would include it today.

At one time, this barn was on U.S. Highway 62 in Brown County. However, U.S. 62 and U.S. 68 were joined to form a 4-lane divided highway and most traffic was diverted off of this road. When that happened, there would be no need to repaint this Rock City ad, and fix the misspelled word. I've also heard stories about the Mail Pouch barn painters that sometimes, they would misspell the word Tobacco just to see if anyone noticed. Once someone complained, they'd go back and fix it.

This barn is a couple of miles north of the city if Ripley, Oh and this road becomes Main St. into Ripley where it will meet U.S. 52, which is also now the Ohio River Scenic Byway.

Oh, and it's Chattaooga that's missing an N.
