Speaking with relatives about family history, I am often told to keep this piece of information between you, me and the gate post.

A flyer found in the store reports the building is a 130 years old structure, which means it was built around the early 1880s. Country stores sold everything from sugar to a pound of nails. The building is now a restaurant serving country favorites, known best for the fried chicken.
The store is located in Lorman, Jefferson County, Mississippi, between Fayette and Port Gibson on Hwy 61.
