Tobacco curing barn in southwest Prince Edward County, Va., on secondary road 667. This old curing barn is made of logs and was probably built late in the 19th century. The tin roof was added years later. This barn is typical of the fire-curing barns throughout Southside Virginia. Few curing barns are of better construction in this area in 1962.
