This Delightful General Store In Texas Will Have You Longing For The Past
General stores have a way of making us reminisce on some the best parts of our childhood: Friday nights at the soda fountain with friends, dancing to tunes from a jukebox, Sunday afternoon ice cream with the family…ah, those were the good old days. While we can’t bring back those times, we can do the next best thing and visit places that allow us to relive the cherished memories. Authentic general stores like this one in historic downtown Jefferson are the perfect blasts from the past.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
