The village has changed quite a bit over the years. I remember going "downtown" to the local pharmacy to get a milkshake or an "original" cherry coke. (Back in the days where they added cherry syrup to regular coke to get cherry coke.) I remember the old hardware store (Haney's). It's a ninjitsu studio now, but back when I was growing up, that's where you went to get your "uniform" for PE. It's also where you would get your "official" Stone Mountain High jacket.
Mama Mia's (an Italian Restaurant run by Larry) is now the "Crab Pot". The Stone Mountain Handbag store (where my mom worked once) is empty. So many of the store fronts are empty now. The town is working on revitalizing itself. There is a bike repair shop now, which is great for the bikers headed out to the park. The gas station is still there, though it's not Payne's Texaco any longer. It's also not open as often as it used to be.
