For the Photogroup 101 Abandoned Theme.
A Mail Pouch Tobacco Barn is a barn painted with an advertisement for the West Virginia Mail Pouch Chewing Tobacco Company. AT the height of the program in the early 1960;s, there were about 20,000 Mail Pouch barns spread across 22 states. The majority of these barns are now gone, so it is exciting to come across one. This barn is located in West Virginia.
