The Tobacco Pack Houses of the Carolina Countryside

Record #:
From the late 1800s to the early 1900s, every tobacco farm had one - a pack house, or barn, a one-and-a-half to two-story building, where cured tobacco was brought for grading and tying before going to market. Today, replaced by mechanization and modern bulk curing barns, pack houses are reminders of bygone days. They dot the countryside with their leaning, weathered, sometimes ivy-covered, walls.
