David & Vera Whitfield – It's Better in Person

David & Vera Whitfield

This tobacco barn is located on the Whitfield Farm, where for many years tobacco was harvested and placed in the barn to dry. Every summer the smell of tobacco curing was a familiar smell in the community. The homeowner chose her barn quilt square because of her love of red birds. Her barn quilt square is in memory of Malissa Oakley Allen, the owner’s mother who was an avid quilter.
