Other Information

(Barn notes and story from Jack Brown) This barn has several unique features. First it is one of the few, if not the only, authentic brown Mail Pouch barn. Second, this is the only Mail Pouch barn that Harley numbered. (17,121) The story goes something like this: Harley was contracted to paint the Mail Pouch sign on the barn. On completion, the owner wanted Harley to number it. Harley had no idea of the exact number of barns that he had painted, but gave no clue to this lack of knowledge as he put the number under his signature. The owner was happy, Harley grinned, and the number is still visible today. In relaying the story years later, Harley said, "the damn fool wanted a number, so I gave him a number."
Where to find it
At 5100 Post Rd., in Dublin, at the "Toy Barn". Take Post Rd. northwest from US Rt.33/OH Rt. 161 (W. Bridge St.). The barn is on the right side of the highway headed northwest. The MP sign faces northeast, away from the road, and can be viewed only after entering the "Toy Barn" parking lot. One side. Brown.
