Now and Then

Sometimes, the old buildings survive and prosper.
This is one example from Union Grove, NC.

The Union Grove General Store in 2023
And the same store, likely taken in the mid to late 1950’s. (via Iredell County Library)

This particular little store/gas station sat empty for a number of years but was revitalized and reopened around 2007.
So far, the passing of time has been kind to it.
