Before the construction of Interstate 75, US Highway 41 was a main North-South route for tourists en route to and from Florida. Remnants of those busier times, such as this general store, are becoming quite rare. General stores selling groceries and sundries, as well as fuel, were essentially the convenience stores of their era.
Mark Salter identified the store as belonging to Palmer Greene. I’m not sure if it was Palmer Hamilton Greene (1889-1980) or his son Palmer Gibson Greene (1920-2002).
This is the old store belonged to palmar Greene
I have traveled Hwy 41 several times over the years, mostly in the 1960’s-70’s. Was always a joy.
I really enjoy reading the weekly digest of your posts in my email (signed up after you appeared in the Bitter Southerner). Great photos and storytelling. Do you post your photos anywhere else in higher resolution?
