Barn Charm Tuesday


On April 5, 1856, Booker T. Washington was born a slave on the 207-acre farm of James Burroughs. After the Civil War, Washington became founder and first principal of Tuskegee Normal and Industrial School.

This barn is located at the Booker T Washington National Park in Hardy, Va.

  16. This is a wonderful picture of a very interesting -- and charming -- barn. I like the somber color of the photo -- it fits the time and place of the barn. Thanks for the history.
