June 1998

Jonesboro, Tennessee

This structure in Jonesboro sits right next to the Norfolk Southern line coming west out of Johnson City. I am assuming it originally was a...hmmm...Salt House. It looks like it used to have a covered platform on this side, probably over a railroad siding. Now, whether a Salt House was used for the storage and distribution of salt is a good question. Not knowing any difference, I would say it was. Maybe someone else knows more about this particular structure. Anyway, it is a neat old building that looks like it dates back to the late 1800s. It's now an antique gallery.
