Biggins Store /Post Office and one time coal company store

i miss this so much! love to buy pennie candy ! would walk there with grandpaw or my sisters my grandpaws name was ward huffman but alot of people new him as bunk huffman. my name is joann vannatter.

My mother, Martina Walls, was Postmaster at this store. She left that position in 1981. This building is no longer standing. But the safe that was inside the store is still there. This use to be the neighborhood hangout. Each evening after supper time, folks gathered here to visit and share the local happenings. People were close with their neighbors back then. So much was lost when the post office and store closed.
