For those not familiar, Gough is pronounced GOFF. The white building in the foreground is the Gough Lodge of the Prince Hall Masons, an African-American fraternal association. Agricultural warehouses can be seen in the distance.

Bob & Bob’s Grocery is a step back in time, with its old Coca-Cola sign and gas pumps right at the front door. There’s also a restaurant next door, though I’m not sure if it’s open. The store was quite busy. Dr. Joseph Kitchens, a Gough native, writes: The building was owned by my grandfather, Cyrus White Kitchens who had it constructed to house his bank (the Bank of Gough). The grocery store has obviously been here for a long time, judging by the age of the sign.

The owner of the adjacent properties told me this was a funeral home for as long has he could remember.  I believe it could have originally been a schoolhouse or church.
