Oh No, Martin, it is no longer active at all. It's closed up tight and the porch was most unsturdy under my feet. Still, it's character charmed me completely.

Thank you for your great appreciation of such places. It's always a pleasure to find you here, and I thank you again for your kind words.

Wishing you a wonderful day,

Mary Alice

Greetings, Marion, and thank you for stopping by this little country store. Yes, it is very good to see that they are letting these wonderful old gems stick around for as long as they can hold up. They add so much character and history to a place. Thank you for enjoying the shot. It's good to hear from you tonight. :)

Good evening, Nguyentran, and how are you? As far as I can tell, this little store was basically a "General Store", probably selling just about anything. It hasn't been open for business for a while, but certainly leaves behind many great memories I'm sure. Thank you for enjoying the shot, and for your "like" vote too. I hope this evening finds you well. :)

Best regards to both of you,

Mary Alice

For every one interested in the old Freedonia Store. It was built by Alexander McDonald and John A. Hurst in 1833. They moved to Freedonia from LaGrange, GA that year. The tanyard was operated by my great great Grandfather James Reid Law until he lost it in a mortagage to his brother in law John Hurst. John Hurst, James Law and Asa Cox were all married to daughters of Alexander McDonald and wife Unity Glover.

Lawpeterr, I can't thank you enough for providing this wonderful information & history on this darling little Country Store. I appreciate it so very much. Places like this make me so curious. I am indeed grateful for your contribution. Please stop by and visit again anytime.

Warmest regards,

Mary Alice
