The Old Country Store: Gone, but Not Forgotten

Record #:
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.
