Hemphill School and old Store

On the way home from Purchase Knob we stopped by this refurbished school, Hemphill School established in 1847. My mom had fun ringing in the school bell. It was a very neat building, with a pulley system to close the front gate. Very ingenious folks way back in the day!
This old country store is less than a mile from our house, interesting sign of times past. It's hard to read in this photo, but appears the main sign advertised shoes, and the proprietor was an A Moody! Not relations that we know of!
