Rock City is a road side attraction near Chattanooga Tennessee that dates back to the early 1930's. Shortly after Rock City's opening the primary means of advertising was by painting "See Rock City" on Barns throughout the region. Over the course of 30 years an estimated 900 barns were painted with the iconic advertisement. Today there are less than 100 of these barns known to exist. This particular barn is along US 411 just North of Rydall Georgia. We have passed by this particular barn numerous times over the years while traveling to the Smoky Mountains to go camping. As a fan of rural highways instead of traveling the usually mundane interstate system I recall seeing many of these barns throughout the years. Once again I felt I needed to capture an image of this barn before it too disappears from the landscape like so many others.
