Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

This old combination general store/post office/gas station was built in 1916 in the small town of Overstreet on Florida's gulf coast. It was moved to its present site along with several other historic buildings to form a quaint little village on what is now known as White Dog Plantation, a charming retreat that serves as an event venue and also offers rooms for overnight guests. It is located just north of town. My daughter attended a wedding there over the weekend and took this photo.

This looks like a real step back in time, in particular the Post Office sign.
hi there Lois, glad you stopped by and also so glad that you know what Frisch's is....LOl--not many people know what I am talking about when I mention Frischs, ha ha LOL. OH my gosh I LOVE THEIR BIG BOY SANDWICHES...I ate so many while were were up north! LOL They also have the best onion rings...and back in the day they had the best coconut and chocolate PIE!!--not sure if they still have those or not. They used to have amazing fish sandwiches too....but I didn't see those on the menu now. What was your favorite food there? Do you remember the HOT FUDGE CAKE???! I love your post today--would love to visit there. I love the old fashioned general stores. So neat how they have restored it/kept it up and can use it for events, etc.
Uma bela casinha.
Uma boa semana.

A pretty original building.
I would love to live in this house, if you remove the porch, it is my grandmothers house in Manassas GA... she had 3 steps up to the door. daddy was born in it in 1913, I think it was built in 1901
bob did fine, will be doing a story on the afer
What a nice little store !
Very pretty building.
Hello, it is a pretty building. I like these old general stores. The vintage signs are great! Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!
It's wonderful that this building was preserved. I love hearing histories like this especially about buildings that served so many purposes all in one spot.
That is a real flashback, Lois!
All the signs point to a trip down memory lane: the Gulf sign, King Edward Cigars plus the red chairs on the porch. I love visiting small villages that have establishments such as these. . . people with a real sense of history and nostalgia.
A wonderful historic building, and I like all the signs!
I'm happy to see it standing there Lois, saving a wee bit of history instead of bulldozing it down is good to see.
It is a pretty building. It reminds me somewhat of countryside general stores here I've seen.
This has so much old fashioned charm!
They're definitely disappearing. I used to buy hard candy from a store like this as well as redeem empty coke bottles.
Cool!!! That would most definitely be a great place to visit.
I love it! So happy they preserved this wonderful general store!
Very cool! A classic general store and it has just about anything you need.
...what a sweet little place, a wonderful look back to a simple time. This is the kind of place I dream of finding. Thanks Lois for sharing.
I love it! To me it epitomises classic America!
I love places like this!
Interesting that they moved it. That is expensive.
There were a few places like this when I was growing up in the interior of the province of British Columbia in the 50s, but fewer in the 60s, and all had become memories by the 70s. I'm glad, though, that I have some of these memories now in the 21st century. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Places like this make me smile knowing that they are cared for. What a great piece of history.
