Finding and photographing old, unique, and
unusual barns is a hobby enjoyed by many. Barns of
particular interest at this site include: Ohio
Bicentennial barns, round
and polygonal barns, and barns with specific
advertising painted on them, such as the Mail
Pouch barns. Old Mail Pouch signs on buildings
are also displayed at this site. The section on
Mail Pouch barns contains barns & signs with
all types of old tobacco advertising.

sharing information on where these structures exist
and to provide a photographic catalog of these
barns, signs and other structures.

finding these types of structures. Ohio has
hundreds of Mail Pouch barns and this is the only
state with official state logo barns.

barns than Ohio. This sites identifies about 70
