The article talks about the future opening of the Menola School of the Arts, Menola, Hertford County, NC. Its purpose is to maintain the O. P. Snipes House and at the same time provide education and instruction in the old traditional arts.
For towns of yesteryear, general stores supplied an array of household goods and a community center. Threat to their survival came from the automobile, paved roads, and supermarkets. For many years, Menola’s Country Store of Yesteryear held a remnant of general stores’ onetime presence. After it closed, its artifacts were transported to the Murfreesboro Historical Association and Winborne Museum Store, making the store gone but not forgotten.
