Mail Pouch Tobacco Barn

Last fall I was surprised to find this old barn standing on the grounds of  Barkcamp State Park during a trip to Dysart Woods in southeast Ohio.  The barn was originally constructed in the 1800's by Solomon Bentley who operated an orchard in the area.  Now as part of the state park the barn is used for historical displays and exhibits.

The Mail Pouch logo was first painted by Harley Warrick in the early 1980's.  Warrick was one of a handful of artists who traveled the country painting the unique signs.
