Where in Carolina Country is This?
The August Where Is This photo by Renee Gannon features a quilt-covered barn on Meat Camp Road (Hwy. 194), between Boone and Todd. Many of you know this as Art and Pat Kohles’ barn. The locals also call it “the barnyard” and a great gathering place. Joyce Mitchell relayed its history: The barn was built in the early 1960s by her father, Clyde Winebarger, and brother Bobby. Her sister, Pat Kohles, renovated the original building and decorated it with barn quilts created by her daughter Ophea Huntsman. The red door came from the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church chapel in Boone. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Marcella Proffit of Boone, a Blue Ridge Energy member.
