For the rest of this week, we will be looking at country stores. In the past, I have photographed a number of old stores, concentrating on ones that were abandoned and shooting mostly in black and white. (See here.) This week, the stores are all open for business, and photographed in color.
White Hall is a crossroads community in Albemarle County. Nestled up against the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains the community was first settled in the first half of the 18th century. The original Wyant's Store was built in 1888, but that building burned in 1918 and was replaced by the building that still stands today.
