I made this photograph in 2010 and somehow forgot all about it until working on my archives today. It’s quite unusual to see a horse being hitched at a convenience store, though I’m sure Surrency once had more than its fair share of horses. These young men even made sure to “park” the horses within the marked parking spaces.

I wondered if this could be the old Allen Surrency house, so famous for a series of hauntings in the 1870s, but George Eason and Bruce Carson both wrote to say that that house was across the street and burned many years ago. George’s aunt, Maggie Watson, lived here and he recalls visiting her in this house until the early 1960s.
