Barn on Chimney Rock Road
During his retirement, my father lived in Edneyville, North Carolina for ten years so I got to see this barn once or twice a year. It was situated in a small clearing right after the first few twisting turns on Chimney Rock Road on the way to Bat Cave and Lake Lure. I never knew anything about the barn but there’s a strangeness to it with its apparently old, hand hewn wood walls and contradictory, pristine, asphalt shingle roof. No door leads me to believe it’s a tobacco barn but I never saw anything in it. I wonder if it’s still there. If not, there’s this capture on Kodachrome that was made in Nov. 1994 for posterity and possibly art.
