Thank you, Peter and Fawn! The tobacco would have been dried in there with heat from wood or bottled gas. Once finished, it would most likely have been shipped immediately to market. Since the growing of tobacco has been cut back in recent years because of the gradual phasing out of government subsidies, this barn may have been used since for sheltering cows or other animals.

Great colours, would the tobacco have been dried in there or were they just for storage?

Arlene, tobacco is still planted, harvested, and cured in barns locally. However, the "new" tobacco barns are generally steel buildings, and though they are more efficient than these old ones, they aren't as picturesque as a manhole cover. Thanks for commenting!

I like the reference to "old" tobacco barns, that is a good one.
