Over time I hope to put more information in the blog about General Stores, they were a fixture of the 19th century, today we have large box stores but back then they had what were commonly known as General Stores.
Today I'd like to start with a postcard of Tuttle & Spice 1880 General Store. It's at Exit 68 Interstate 81 in Shenandoah Caverns, Virginia. The back of the postcard reads "Welcome to Yesterday! Step inside the old General Store amidst the scales, barrels, cracker boxes and pickle jars and experience part of our heritage. This General Store display is open to the public free of charge.
