This Delightful General Store In Arkansas Will Have You Longing For The Past

The oldest general store in Arkansas is now a restaurant, and the general stores we’re discussing today aren’t traditional general stores either. Instead, they house a museum and gift shop that are sure to send you back in time to the 1940s and 1950s. The pair of unique general stores you’ll find in the small community of Pine Ridge is unlike any other in the Natural State, and it’s totally full of nostalgia.

You can find the Lum & Abner Museum and Jot-em-down Store at 4562 Hwy 88 West in Pine Ridge.
