This is the busiest time of year for me, as a small farmer. Nonetheless, I feel compelled to share what is currently happening to a precious landmark in Rockingham County.
The photos below document the restored tobacco barn which sits a few hundred yards away from the still-majestic (but privately-owned) Chinqua-Penn Plantation. The barn is still owned by the state, to the best of my knowledge (there will be time for investigation later). After some renovation, the barn was converted to a Farmer’s Market, which is still operational. Scroll down for more.
I do not know if/when any repairs will take place.
