Fernvale Shell

Fernvale Shell

For many years, highway TN96 ran through the tiny community of Fernvale, TN in Williamson County. When traffic was routed onto a more modern highway, the station here was soon abandoned.

Over the years, some friends and I would use this building, which used to be very run-down, as a landmark for driving directions to get to a cabin. the instructions would say "Turn left at the abandoned gas station."

Then, about 15 years ago, someone bought the place, fixed it up, and turned it into a small country market. It must have been short-lived as now it looks like a private residence.
