Artful Nostalgia

store with rail fence

I glimpsed this place one day just before dark and decided to go back on a sunny day to get a better look. Isn't it cute? Someone has fixed it up to look like an old-time store and they even decorated the mailbox!

Note the split-rail fence and the windmill and (below) the signs and antique gas pump.


Nearby is a log building with a small mill wheel. All this is on a country road not far from the commuter parking lot near Strasburg.
