Causeyville General Store
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
Hurricane Katrina is still on the lips of Causeyville residence, and the bright metal roof on the general store is a constant reminder of the stormís wrath. Built in 1895, the new Causeyville General Store occupies the lot adjacent the original 1869 trading post, containing the workings of a grist mill. Far from the silent power of a stream, the mill is turned by an International Harvester tractor. Complaints about the noisy tractor have limited mill operations to short tour exhibitions.
The storeís gas pumps have quietly disappeared, along with antique metal advertisement signage.
