I went to Glen Jean, WV to shoot a job today. On the way home, I passed through Whipple and I always take note of the old octagonal building at the crossroads. The odd structure was built as a coal company store in the old days. It hasn't been a company store in a long time but many businesses have been located in the building as time went by. I see now that it's vacant and in terrible shape. It's going to be sad to see that piece of history go.
