The South Carolina Store That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere But So Worth The Journey

Who’s up for an adventure and a bit of history, all rolled into one excursion? The area just to the south of Sumter is filled with country roads and nostalgic places; some of the businesses here have been around for more than a century.

A visit to the oldest general store in South Carolina (and maybe even the oldest in the country!) is a nostalgic step back in time, and also supports a local community in South Carolina. Lenoir Store is located at 3240 Horatio-Hagood Rd., Horatio, SC 29062. It’s open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The post office is open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For more nostalgic wandering, head to the tiny community of Rembert located only a couple of miles up the road from Lenoir Store. Take a peek at this previous article to see this unique village where time stands still.
