The Carmichael general store near Utica, Mississippi was opened in 1898 and run by three generations of Carmichael men until its closing in 2005. W.D Carmichael founded it in 1898; his son D.A. ran it from 1918-1945, and his son Harris Carmichael took it over and operated it for sixty years until his passing in 2005. A genuine time capsule, the decaying country store still draws the curiosity of passers-by and the affection of former customers years later. Harris Carmichael's devoted widow Marian still lives in their home next door and is known to give a tour every so often…
