Going by the Morlow barns on the way home, saw that someone is using the old motlow barns. Stacking hay and some live-stock...

It's nice to see the old barns being used again. Looks great with a critter on the grounds and the bushogging done! Great pics!

Hey Mitch,

Who owns this property? I would hate to see them just fall down. I would be nice to see these preserved.

Pictures from yesterday.

Such a shame the Motlow Heirs are allowing this to happen. Lots of history here in these 2 barns on Lem's old farm. This is where Lem had a thriving mule business during the 1920's and 1930's. It kept him busy and furnished an income during Prohibition so he could re-open the Distillery in 1938.

It has turned into an eyesore on the main highway just as you enter Lynchburg.

(Check out the pictures of the barns posted earlier in this thread)
