B J Confectionary, 1955, Hog Hammock

B J Confectionary served as the island’s de facto grocery store for many years. It was owned by the late Bennie & Viola Johnson; Mrs. Johnson was known for her beautiful grapevine wreaths, which she made regularly and sold to tourists. The structure has recently been restored.
