Week Four–Causeyville General Store in Mississippi

A delightful encounter with the owner of Causeyville General Store was worth taking the trip and the time to discover unincorporated Caseville, MS. (Actually a part of rural Meridian, MS.) The store is official closed until the sale of most of the items. Because Mrs. Dorothy had been interrupted by a frequent local customer while painting a room in her house, I was able to spend a couple of hours listening and looking at the wonders inside the store. The store has had so many break-ins I chose not to take any photographs inside. However, here are the ones I did take of the interesting historic buildings:

The Causeyville General Store and Grist Mill are late 1800s establishments that are great testaments to the old times, ways, and life. The general store is packed with merchandise and mid 20th century memorabilia. There’s also an 1869 gristmill on the property. The structures are historic in themselves, once being a trading post for between the Europeans and the Choctaw Indians.

Unfortunately, this old general store and grist mill may soon be just another memory of things of the past.
