Green Acres is the Place for Me...

Green Acres Barn on Delina Road Tennessee

Winding West on Delina Road we came across a large red barn. The fence line was grown up, so we almost missed the "Green Acres" sign and actually had to come back and stop for the picture.

Come on, how could we pass that up? Here we are, somewhat city folk turned country. So this barn really spoke to us on many levels. Are you singing the theme song yet? You know how it goes.. Green acres is the place for me, farm livin' is the life for me. Land spreadin' out so far and wide.... I know you're singing it now! Well, that is if you're old enough to remember the show! 

Back to the barn, it was a big ol' barn just sitting almost right on the road. Most likely not in use, but the sign was in great shape and still has a ladder hanging on the side of it. I'd really love to know the story behind it. Do you think it was owned by people that moved from the city and was trying to make it as farmers? Or maybe just someone with a great sense of humor? Could have been someone that loved the beautiful lush green acres. In any case, I knew the moment I saw it, it would definitely make our blog! Another hidden treasure, just around the corner.
