The corner store was originally The Bank Of Siloam, the vault is still inside. My cousins, Lawson and Ulma O’Neil McKinley owned it as a grocery/general store last. My grandparents lived in this town of Siloam, so I grew up around there and visit yearly – I also love to take photographs of areas before they are lost.

    This picture is of the stores in Siloam the one on The right used to be a grocery store and there was actually 4 stores there. I lived right across the street the first store was Mr.Hollis Powell’s grocery store then was Jarrads grocery the second store was a Drug store Dr. Johnson’s drug store. Mr Noel’s store was there also. His was more of a general store. Across the street was a gas station too

I also write family history stories, incorporating the area with photos.
