Burley Barn

“Burley” is another term for tobacco.  Tobacco barns used to stand proudly across the southeastern United States when tobacco was “king”.  Tobacco was harvested, bundled, and hung to dry in the burley barns.  Most barns were painted black to absorb the sun's heat to help dry the tobacco.   Once the tobacco had dried, the tobacco farmer would take his crop to auction to sell to the tobacco companies.
