Mystery of the Tobacco Barn

While filing the notes from my Brodbecks Post, of earlier this week, I noted one item, buried in the “Cliff Art” folder, still with a yellow Post-it. It is related to a tobacco barn in the snow, the subject of this 1981 painting by Cliff Satterthwaite. The memory of its precise location remains a mystery to Cliff, however he is certain this barn is somewhere in York County.

I was unsuccessful in identifying the location of this barn two years ago. I visited five suspected sites, determined via reviewing aerial photos, however no matches with the painting were discovered. Hopefully one of my readers recognizes this barn.
