Griffin Store, Wilkes County

This well-loved landmark near Phillips Mill Baptist Church is a favorite in the community. And they still pump your gas for you!

False Front General Store, Rayle

One may notice a trend when in Rayle. The historic storefronts and warehouses are all sided with tin. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why this is the most interesting and significant of the bunch. There’s the wonderful Jefferson Island Salt mural, the tin brick, and the fact that it’s a rare two-story false front store (a shed roof has been removed). But most importantly, the owners have allowed it to stand intact all these years. I hope to learn more about it and hope it’s around for a long time.

Commercial Row, Circa 1910, Washington

This commercial row on Depot Street is a great example of turn-of-the-century retail architecture and appears to have been abandoned for many years.

B. C. Wilcher General Merchandise, Mitchell

This is an amazingly well-preserved general store, like most of the commercial structures in the historic area of Michell. I’m really surprised the whole downtown isn’t on the National Register of Historic Places. It should be.
