Each time I drive to my parent's home, I have to veer off the interstate and travel down a two-lane highway. It is by far the most pleasant part of the journey. It goes in a nice, southerly straight line through Alabama and right through some beautiful old towns.
I have passed this old general store many a time and thought about stopping. And, this time, I finally did. Located in Opp, Alabama, this store is home to more than a few relics. Antique signs hang outside and the inside is just as rustic.
The old wooden doors clanged appropriately when we entered and left the building.
This tiny building, next door to the larger store, held more signs and a few antiques inside.
I do think this old Texaco sign looks like it has been hit with just a few bullets.
Not only did this store serve coffee, but also one very fine cheeseburger.
And, also some pecan pie that I did not have time to sample. Perhaps next time......
