This store is like stepping back in time. It has changed hands over the past years, but the owners try to maintain the same atmosphere of the old general store. Twenty years ago they still had crackers, sweet potatoes, and other produce for sale in barrels. It is still a unique place to visit and reminisce past times.

Ended up here because I like to look for old, historical things and this is one of those places. A large store in a real small town, this place, a post office and an abandoned building across the street comprised the center of town. Has a railroad running by with freight buildings and an appropriately timed freight train came through... More

Go upstairs and look at the old clothes. I purchased a flannel shirt sold the year I graduated high school.

Like stepping back in time . This place has been in operation since 1847 . A little piece of East Texas History . If only those walls could talk . There was a Lady there that has worked there for over 50 years who can quote history all day long . The hoop cheese cut on a 100+ year old... More

Visited while exploring old Highway 80 in eastern Texas. Was like a time machine. Still family owned, things were slow enough that the family showed me around and told me about the history of the store and of Jonesville in general. Well worth the time and will bring back many memories!

I have taken my history and marketing students to "touch history." This store was being built in the Republic of Texas era and it becoming a state in 1846. Students can see a historical General Store, the old post office within, the listing of 7 Disney movies made there, eat a wedge of "rat trap cheese" cut from the circular... More

I have had the privilege of taking some of my best fiends to the T. C. Lindsey General Store for their first visit. My grandparents had a store like this when I was a child but it was not of this scale. It still brings back memories. If you are traveling between Dallas and Shreveport do yourself a favor and...

This should be added to your "bucket list" of must stops if you are in east Texas. Just a couple of miles off Interstate 20. You will not be disappointed if you love history. A note of caution---this store is open just a few hours each wee. The Friday we visited the hours I believe were 10AM to 2PM and... More

We walked into the store and it felt like we stepped back in time. It's a must-see! We were offered samples of a cheddar cheese that the store clerk cut for us on a 100+ year-old cheese cutter. My sisters both loved the cheese enough to purchase some! There are some items there that are not for sale (a lot... More
