Peyton’s Store, Kentucky

Tucked in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky is Peyton’s Store. It’s a rural community of several households, named after an old general store that was once located along the roadway, but it’s nothing more than a wayside today.

Located at the heart of Peyton’s Store is a very unique house. The gingerbread detailing add a nice finish to the exterior, while inside wood paneling and angled door casings give the house a bit of flare.

The house was last occupied by Gaynell Manuel (June 23, 1920 – September 21, 1985).

    I was at this same house taking pictures a few weeks ago. We were told by a neighbor, not to venture closer or inside due to rattlesnakes. My friend and I figured we’d go back in the winter when the snakes are hibernating. Very cool old structure. Got many pictures from the outside of it.
