Breeze through Cameron’s downtown and visit the intersection of Red Hill, Stanton Hill, and Nickens roads. There you’ll find the highest concentration of barns painted by Cameron-born artist David Ellis and colleagues from New York and Toyko in the 1990s.
Nicknamed “The Barnstormers,” the group had some of the barns broken down and re-assembled in The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem for an exhibit. Some of the rest have been broken down by nature in the time since.
Every once in awhile these rural gems pop up on a travel website. Be sure to see them before they’re gone. Park your car and look around — the barns are well-traveled. If you’re wearing closed-toe shoes, feel free to explore.
