Near Chattanooga Tenn

This is Lewis Bruton's Rock City Barn on Highway US 64, the old highway that connects Memphis to Chattanooga. It is in Lawrence County, Tennessee about 5 miles East of the Natchez Trace Parkway, or 9 miles west of Lawrenceburg.

This barn can be easy to miss if you're not looking closely for it. Much of highway US64 between Memphis and where it meets I-24 in Franklin County has been or is in the process of being converted to a 2-lane divided highway. In most instances, the older winding road is not marked as a highway. This barn is along the old stretch, but is really close to an intersection with a modern highway. If you're travelling eastbound on the newer 64, I suspect you won't see it as the barn won't quite be facing you.
