Gas & Gro

This is the Parham Store. I was able to stop and talk to the owner for about half an hour or so. He also let me take a few pictures of an old sharecroppers house on his property as well. According to him this store was built in the late 1800's, but he's not sure when the gas pump was added. He said that his granddad and great granddad would sit out on the front porch of the house right next to the store, and when people would pull up to they'd go unlock the doors and pump gas for them. At one point, there was a little overhang above the door.


H/T to Paul for the heads up on this place!
