In 1999, Cameron native David Ellis enlisted a small group of fellow New York City artists to travel to Cameron, NC and paint a bunch of tobacco barns (and a house or two).



They came to town and shared their takes on Pokemon, American Gothic, and more with the world.



Nicknamed The Barnstormers, the group used the canvas of Cameron to create a living, breathing masterpiece.



It's amazing that some seventeen years later, many of the barns are still standing.



Granted, the barns are definitely showing their age, but the the chipped paint and creeping vegetation only adds another level to the art.



The barns can be found all over Cameron, but the address below is at the intersection of Nickens Road, Red Hill Road, and Stanton Hill Road.



It is here where you'll find the largest collection of barns, including the American Gothic barn and both Pokemon barns.



And if you want to catch 'em all, stop by one of the antique stores in town, ask nicely, and chances are they'll give you a free map.
