EXPERIENCE
General Stores of Greene County

January 30, 2012

Take a drive through Greene County, PA and you'll see lots of countryside, coal mines and something else: general stores. No, they're not a thing of the past. In fact, Greene County has so many general stores -- more than a dozen of them -- that it offers a self-guided driving tour. WQED's Tonia Caruso visits just a few, showing how the stores blend a unique mix of history and modern day amenities.
