Revisiting America

I know it's impossible to visit every street and see all the beautiful houses, or visit every store and see what their wares are, but after driving by the Taftsville Country Store many times, I had to stop and go inside.  Sunday afternoon was a perfect time because nothing seemed busy. 
This landmark store is listed on The National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1840 to serve the community that had grown because of the endeavors of Daniel Taft, Sr. and his three sons, and still serves the community as a grocery store, information and message center, lost pet retrieval service, billboard for local events, and gossip central.  Sorry, finish later, I am already late for a meeting.
