The store was the shopping location for most of the employees of the ranch
and for other families from the surrounding area.  The mercantile provided most
 the daily supplies for the operation of the ranching activities.

A few years ago a reunion was held at the ranch and the mercantile was the focal
point for the gathering.  Several hundred people participated and they came from
many different locations across Texas.


On December 24th and 25th of 2004 snow fell in McFaddin.  The above picture shows the store in the snow.
