Looks like this old business block was once the center of life in Danville. I’ll let you know when I find out more about it.

The building on the right is most certainly an old country store, but I don’t know if it’s original to the location or if it was moved here at some point. Still, it’s a very nice old place.

Named for postmaster J. W. Allen, Allentown is known for being located in four counties. The majority of the community, though, is located in Wilkinson County.

As the modern sign on this tastefully restored old structure notes: John T. Land sold anything that might be needed in a small farming community like Allentown. Dry Goods. Groceries. Plantation Supplies. I’d like to know more about the store, but have been unable to find anything thus far.

It’s always great to find independent, American-owned businesses like this one. Anywhere…and Mike Deaton notes that the Curl family ran a store here for so many years that it’s still called Curl’s by locals.
