This Delightful General Store in Arizona Will Have You Longing For The Past
Finding remnants of the past isn’t a difficult feat in Arizona but places like general stores and trading posts still operating decades—or centuries—later is more of a challenge. Thankfully, there are some great examples of these stores still standing and some have even managed to keep the charm of their settler roots. Today, we’re going to check out one general store that is historic, charming, and one of the main hubs in this tiny town.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
