See Rock City

Life in Christian County, Kentucky... Life in The Upper South...




This barn sits on the north side of Highway 41 (the Dixie Beeline Highway) between Hopkinsville and Pembroke. The highway is being widened to a 4-lane and a lot of things are being bulldozed to make way for the road improvement, but I believe this interesting old barn sits far enough off the road that it will be safe. Rock City is a tourist attraction in the Chatanooga, TN, area. Advertisements like this one are painted on various barn roofs along highways in our area.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
