Bradley's

 
Posted by Picasa


Bradley’s Country Store is located about 12 miles east of Tallahassee and still looks just the same as it did when it first opened in 1927. Bradley's is famous for country smoked sausage, made from Grandma Mary Bradley's recipe, which she started selling from her home kitchen back in 1910. Four generations of the Bradley family have carried on the tradition and Bradley's Country Store was placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

I love Cocuntry Stores and this is a beauty. Here, they are usually called "General Store" but they all have one thing in common - a verandah at the front with table/chairs. And usually three or four steps. I like the trees framing the store.

Ooh, that looks so quaint! I bet the homecooked sausage is delicious. Nice place for a respite.

Attractive building - and that verandah looks like a great place to sit and watch the world go by.
