Vintage Barn, Lebanon


A drive out to the countryside is always special when you happen upon one of these iconic 'Mail Pouch' barns as I did Saturday outside Lebanon, Tennessee. With the weather warm and a bit of sunshine before the clouds and rain moved in from the South, I decided a drive was in order. Lebanon is a small town just east of Nashville. I happened upon this barn as I was making my way back to the main road. These logo'd barns are numerous especially throughout Kentucky and Tennessee.


By the way, did you know this is a 'monitor' barn meaning the roof is raised in the center. I wasn't sure what style it was so I looked it up. There's quite a few styles of barns which I am sure we all realize in our travels.

I don't know about you, but I am eagerly awaiting the first sprouts of Spring. I envision Daffodils or "Daffys" as some folks call them, and Crocus and Dogwood blooms, and Tulips in bright orange and purple and pink. And even better, Easter is in a few weeks too. Are you getting your "bunny" on? ENJOY!

  1. That yellow logo really pops against the dark barn. I thought you had family in Kentucky, so I can imagine you miss them. When spring finally blossoms, and you can explore more, Nashville will feel more like home.

  2. Last year I found an unrecorded Mail Pouch Barn in New York State. This barn does not seem to be recorded on the Mail Pouch Barnstormers website. Send your photo and info to:

  5. Mail pouch doesn't mean anything to me,
    we don't have that here :)
    But I do love that bright blue sky and the
    barn is pretty also :))

    Have a beautiful day!

  7. what's better than a beautiful elderly barn, against a blue sky?

    i'm going to look for more barn shapes -- so i can "monitor" and identify some that i pass by often.

    ........ edited to fix some typos!

  8. That is a great barn shot. Now you have me all interested in finding out the different style of barns.We don't have too many logo'd barns here in Oklahoma. I would like to drive around your neck of the woods and see what is there.

  15. Hi Carol. I am a member of The Barnstormers. We maintain a Facebook page and we also have a website www.mailpouchbarnstormers.org. I am asking your permission to use your photo on our website. We currently only have two entries in the state of Tennessee and this would make the third. If permission is granted, could you let me know what route the barn is along, so I can hunt it down and provide an exact location along with the GPS coordinates on our website. Thanks. Dave Tower
