Lynn Garden Businesses

Both of these are Lynn Garden (Kingsport TN) landmarks.  Both are on Lynn Garden Drive.  The restaurant is very much still in business, but the hardware store is long gone.

Grimm’s Store

This is Grimm’s Store.  It’s at 36.61449, -82.72286 on Highway 634 near nowhere in particular in southwest Virginia.  The store closed in the 60s.  According to received information (we stopped and chatted with a guy who was out mowing his lawn), Grimm owned quite a bit of land and also drove a school bus.  He lived in this building.  The door to the left went into his personal area.  Pretty rugged Pet and Coca-Cola signs. That’s a tobacco drying basket across the window on the right.
