Drive by shootings: Dual purpose barn…


I’ve seen many barns with advertisements on them.  But I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one advertising an indoor water park.  This one is somewhere near Erie, Pennsylvania.



Linking to Bluff Area Daily's Barn Charm.

Honestly I haven't seen that many barns or any that had advertisements on it. Nice barn though. sandie

We traveled up to Columbus, Ohio this past weekend and I discovered a slew of barns that I am itching to venture back in that direction to photograph. I was especially excited that one had an old Mail Pouch ad.

Debbie said...

perhaps the sign is holding that old place together!!

i see a huge crack in that pretty wood!!

Rose said...

I hope they're getting a nice fee for the use of their barn side advertising!

Mari said...

It's such a cute barn! I like the ad too.

Love the old barn. The advertisement, not so much.

Brian King said...

My guess is they took advantage of a prominent location and the property owner made some money. Just a guess. That's a wonderful old barn!

That is a neat old barn! The sign is a bit bright and would be hard to miss!

Beautiful photo!

Who would have thought the Interstates would provide a little income to the farmer. Hope he gets a good fee for the ad space.

Beth said...

I have to agree with a couple of previous commenters, Barbara. The old barns has lots of charm, not so much the garish advertisement. And a good point others made about it possibly holding the old place together.

What a neat old barn. I guess they had to put that ad somewhere!

Sandra said...

LOL, this is funny an advertising barn.. like other homes, close to main streets, that brings some money to the owners. Very nice picture!
