Hollis Country Store

The Hollis Country Store is a historic general store on Arkansas Highway 7 in rural Perry County, Arkansas. It is located on the west side of AR 7 in the Ouachita National Forest, a short way north of the South Fourche LaFave River Bridge. In addition to the store, the property includes a picnic shelter and two tourist cabins. The core of the store is a stone structure built in 1931–32, with most of the other parts added in the 1950s. It is an excellent example of vernacular roadside architecture from the period.[2]
