Abandoned General Store
On a recent quest for weirdness, my best buddy and I ran across this old general store at the corner of Highway 2 and 182 in Carter County. It was wide open, so we went in. The shelves and displays were still in place, but the merchandise and customers were long gone. The downstairs of the structure was in decent condition, but the upstairs was pretty rickety with a saggy floor that I didn't venture too far into. To the side of the building was what looked like an addition that never got finished. According to the handmade plaque, it was built in 1937 by C.R. Kiser and son.
