The All-American Country Store In Kentucky That’s So Iconic It’s Created Its Own Town
As time passes, our needs change, and so do the stores where we buy these necessities for everyday life. But when it comes down to it, we all still just need the basics and there’s no better place to get them than an old-fashioned country store. These stores have long been the center of the community and Kentucky is lucky enough to still have some of them, scattered throughout its small towns. One of the most legendary destinations, Stull’s Country Store, can be found in Meade County, in what was once known as Andyville, and this all-American country store is so iconic it’s created its own town and is making sure it lives on today.
