Architectural Building Blocks of Bright Leaf Tobacco near Blanch North Carolina






Top:  Single bay, 1 1/2 story house, with stucco covering.  Later additions appear to be a second room or kitchen to the left, and bathroom to the back of the house.  Many of these house types survive in rural Caswell County, houses of small, poorer farmers and farm workers for the past 250 years.  Though this is not one, many are currently lived in.

Bottom:  Flue-cured tobaaco barn, for curing and storing.  A simple rooftop is attached to the left side, for keeping weather off of farm equipment.
