Travel back to an era before spam and pop-up ads and enjoy the innovative advertising vehicles known as the “See Rock City” barns, one of which was refurbished for Hampton® Hotels’ Save-A-Landmark® Program. The barns, one of the first forms of roadside advertising (the walls and roofs), stand as charming landmarks on farms throughout the South. The painted advertisements are no longer allowed, and many of these structures have disappeared over the years. Hampton® Hotel volunteers helped to rebuild and preserve one called the William Chaney barn on Highway 411, which has survived since the early ’40s.
