The Old Mercantile

Sometimes I will do a longer post, today just an image of a favourite building. Apparently it is full of junk and may be haunted. Enjoy this now and then of the Prudden Mercantile.

Hope everyone is staying home and staying healthy, not just for yourself but for those around you.
In the meantime, travel through blogs!

  1. Interesting. Drives in the country should be safe, as long as you clean your hands well after pumping gas.

    1. Agreed! I have heard that some gas stations aren't even letting people in, only pay at the pump.

  9. The mercantile building is the big white building with the "stepped" roof on the far right hand side of the photo. It is a huge old building!
