Peach Packing Barn, Miami Valley

At its peak, the fruit-packing industry was so dominant in Peach County that at least two settlements took on the name of companies that were vital to the area’s economy. One was Lee Pope. Another was Miami Valley, named for the area around Lebanon, Ohio, where the company that built this barn was headquartered. Although the name Miami Valley appears on maps to this day, it’s scarcely known outside Peach County.

    I like this shot. A heavily photographed barn – but always from the side because of the old vehicle in there. You showed us another perspective. Thanks.
