An Old Service Station in Knott County
My uncle ran a service station here for a while back in the 1960s, and lived in the back. I can remember playing there, and I think quite a lot of characters from the area (its surprising how many people live in the middle of nowhere) hung out there. It was a good source of illegal fireworks around Christmas time.
Later it became the Hindman Monument Company, even though it is several miles out of town. They made headstones for graves & other cemetery related stuff.
Now I just think its abandoned.
