Causeyville General Store, Causeyville Community MSTuesday, December 06, 2005
Av and I stopped in at the Causeyville General Store for a couple of cokes - the store is soooo neat, and the woman that runs it - Dorothy Hagwood - is super-nice. We talked for a long time.
Below are pictures of the store. It was built in 1895; the bottom pictures show the building (built in 1869) that she mills cornmeal in when she has the corn to do so.
Above: this sweet dog also has a wooden box lined with hay to lie in on the porch. He's yawning in this pic.
Above: nice signs!
Isn't the interior great? She has antiques for sale as well as everything else you would find in just about any other shop...cokes, chips, laundry detergent, canned food, etc.
Above: this is a *real* peanut roaster that's been restored.
Above: This is the original building. Today it houses the mill.
If you're ever in the area, definitely stop by. Dorothy is great to talk with, and she has *so* many neat things in the store - old player pianos, radios, movie posters, etc. BTW, she also sells cane syrup, and if you live far away, she'll ship it. The phone number to the store is 601.644.3102.
