An abandoned store and gas station served travelers on Gray's Highway between Augusta and Savannah. Like the attendant who once tilted back on a porch chair and watched the cars go by, now the old station itself seems to lean back quietly and watch the road.
It might have started its days as a store back when the nearest town was called Dixie.
Near the tiny town of Varnville, in its time it provided a living for the family in the house behind it.
Somewhere not very far from this spot, this photo was taken. Anyone recognize it?

Yup, the home of Forest Gump!
Although the house was in Alabama in the movie, it was actually built near Varnville, SC and torn down after filming ended.
