‘Once these things are gone, they’re gone’

A piece of Americana and longtime local landmark was saved from demolition this week.

On Tuesday a crew was busy cutting the side of a barn that had “See Beautiful Rock City atop Lookout Mountain” painted on its side. The barn side will be reconstructed and displayed at The American Sign Museum in Cincinnati.

Tod Swormstedt, founder of the sign museum, oversaw the deconstruction and was elated to get his hands on the sign.
