O.J. Rudacille Gen. Mdse.

Browntown, Virginia 

After I took this picture I went inside and met the owner of the store, Mr. Tom Lacombe. The store is the social center of the town. Everyone that came in while I was there greeted the proprietor as "Tom," and Tom called all his customers by their first name.

Tom is also somewhat of the local historian, and shared with me information on the history of Browntown and directed me to some of the local landmarks. Take a look at the Facebook page about the store and Browntown.

The store was built in 1885 and has been in continuous operation since that time.


Third Sunday is coming up and we will feature the two churches in Browntown. Stop by on Sunday. Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.

  1. It is a wonderful place, Browntown, and that incredible, left in the 50s store with dolls wrapped in plastic and toys from a past time. I love it there, but... left years ago! Thanks for sharing!
