Hurricane Tavern and Cashville Mercantile Store

I noticed this store today while driving back from Woodruff and when I got home decided to do a little research.

Turns out it dates back to 1920 and the home next to it was built in 1811. Apparently it was quite the place back in the day. It was a farm, tavern and store located on the stage coach road from Columbia to Asheville and from Anderson to Spartanburg. There were 18 homes on the site for the tenants and their families to live.

It still contains a number of structures on the property as well as a cotton gin but it's all very dilapidated.

There's quite a bit more I found out about the property on the National Registry of Historic places website.  Hurricane Tavern

There are more photographs here.
