Little building for sale at J & F sparks memories

Rev. Wayne Hamby and Rev. John Blakey recently discussed the history of the little building which will spark memories in most middle-aged adults passing by the J & F Variety and Book Store on Burkesville Road outside Columbia.
The structure is for sale for $500, as is. It is an authentic three-holer from the James Dohoney farm, which was recently bought by Don Franklin and some local associates.

Rev. Blakey thinks that the building is 100 years old. If someone doesn't buy the old outhouse soon, he will begin repairs with matching clapboard. It will then cost more, he says.

Rev. Hamby, besides being an evangelist, is co-Proprietor, with his wife Margaret, of Fairplay General Store & Hardware, Fairplay, KY.

Rev. Blakey is the "J" of J & F Variety and Book Store. His wife, Faye, is co-owner.

Prospective buyers can contact J & F at 270-385-9168 or
