Curiosity will have to get the best of you as to what discoveries I had today. After a long twelve-hour drive and a drive through a rural road in North Carolina, I’m too pooped to do more than post one photo tonight.
There are two places in North Carolina that are devoted to preserving the history of Tobacco Farming. The Tobacco Farm Life Museum in Kenly, North Carolina maintains historical buildings dating to the early 1900’s from Eastern North Carolina Tobacco farms.
As one of the few remaining log tobacco curing barns, this barn was sitting in a forest of pine trees, draped in the mist.
I can’t wait to share more with you about this amazing discovery tomorrow, after some desperately needed rest. Stay tuned.

There’s something about a little hut inside a forest, love historic places 🙂
I absolutely agree Andy. Perhaps hobbits lived here. Well, at least a mouse did.
I can almost smell the pines from you photo!
I had forgotten what it was like to be in a white pine forest. So typical of northern Florida too.
Wow, so cool place:-)
I was really impressed how great this museum was. It was closed, but you could tell it was well kept and had great treasures inside.
Thank you for this one perfect image of your adventure, Emily. You weary traveler, you! Get some good rest, and looking forward to hearing the rest of this story! 🙂
You are too kind. I finally caught up with some rest the last day. It’s hard when traveling with hubby, He’s not a sound sleeper. Now off to find birds in Florida!
What a lovely setting for a factory!
These buildings were moved to this location for the museum. How they got the barn inside the forest is beyond me.
