A holdover from last century, this Braxton County barn still bears a familiar Mail Pouch advertisement. Perhaps this faded ad is the handy-work of the late Harley Warrick, one of the few Mail Pouch barns that appear in the West Virginia countryside. Warrick claims to have painted over 20,000 barns in his lifetime, and the Bloch Brother's famous Treat Yourself to the Best slogan was found on buildings in 22 states. Harley's initials, HW, can usually be found on the upper blue border, near the roofline.
