Convenience Store, Devereux

My use of the term “ghost town” for Devereux implies its historic area. As you might expect, there’s a Dollar General here now so it’s still a populated area.

General Store, Devereux

Devereux was planned as a suburb of Sparta though it never materialized in the way its planners had hoped. This was likely the main business in town, located across from the railroad tracks.

Mayfield’s Grocery, Box Ankle

Box Ankle was never much more than a crossroads community and the only remnant of that time, the old Mayfield’s Grocery store, is highly endangered. The grocery was a combination store and residence and has been listed for sale for several years. As to the origin of the name of the community, one source (possibly apocryphal) notes that years ago a cockfight was taking place nearby and two men at the event engaged in a fight themselves. One of the men apparently got pushed or fell over a wooden box and broke his ankle.
