Travelers to Carroll County must stop to visit one of its newest attractions - "Old Country Store Museum." Located in the Cana community along Route 52, the museum is convenient to both the Blue Ridge Parkway (Fancy Gap access point) and Interstate 77(Exit 8).
Owner Ron Leonard has transformed his family's 1941 country store - produce market into a unique museum setting. Items on display are reminders of what would have been in use while the store-produce market flourished from the 1940s to 1980s. Such include: wooden cash register; old soda pop bottles, tobacco items, and many others products available during the 1940 - 1950 period. There is also a large collection of Carroll County local history and genealogy items. Ron Leonard has his artwork on display.
