We visited Pine Ridge in June 2022 and had the privilege of going through the Jot ‘Em Down Store (aka Dick Huddleston’s store) and the Lum and Abner Museum. Our tour guide was Mrs. Stucker whose family has owned these historic buildings for something like 50 years. Check out my blog post about our visit.
Mrs. Stucker told us that she and her husband are ready to sell the property and retire. Wouldn’t I love to be the next curator of the Jot ‘Em Down Store? It’s just a pipe-dream for me. I hope whoever does end up buying it helps retain the flavor and history of our old friends.
The day before we were there this fascinating short documentary premiered on YouTube.
