J. Strom Thurmond Lake

We left Lake Sinclair yesterday after noon heading for the next stop.

It was two lane roads most of the way as we do because we like the small towns.

As we came into Sparta we were facing the court house.  It was nice as we like these old dome with a clock court houses.

Shery and Nancy was wanting to stop and walk the streets for a little while and after seeing a parking spot on the front street I stopped.

Sherry and Nancy enjoying their walk around.

We like to look at and take photos of the old buildings in small towns that are slowly disappearing.

These may be old but they do have charm.

Here's the old Pharmacy.  I bet back in the day many a coke float and sundaes were made.

The town mural, with what looks like a couple of the towns leaders.

Once the Old Eagle Tavern stood here.  Click the picture to enlarge to read all about it.

Oh, we did get a nice lake view site at the Petersburg Campground on Strom Thurmond Lake.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Looks like a nice town that really used to be busy. Too bad it couldn't be revitalized.
Glad the ladies like exploring them as much as we do.
Nice Site at J. Strom Thurmond Lake.
Be Safe and Enjoy the adventure.

It's about time.
