See Rock City barn in Amish Country

See Rock City barn in Amish Country

Ethridge, a small town in the northern part of Lawrence County, is the central location for Tennesse's Amish population. The city is also located along US43 between Columbia and Lawrenceburg. Several Amish merchants opened up shops long this main road. This was soon followed by other merchants who capitalized on the fact that people came to this area to shop, and other trading posts, antique malls, gift shops and shopping centers opened on the main road. A minor tourist spot was born, and often when you find a tourist spot in the south, a barn telling you to see Rock City isn't too far away.

This photo is from 2012 and I last photographed this barn three years prior in 2009. Since then, the barns owner has added all of the metal signs you see here: Coca-Cola, Greyhound, Pet, Purina Chow. I also waited until the Amish man in his buggy had rounded the corner. (Generally speaking, the Amish don't like to have their picture taken where they can be identifiable.) This is one of 86 different Rock City barns I have posted to flickr in my Rock City Barns set.
