Boontown Road Store-Whaleyville, Virginia

Ella’s Grove-Centenary, South Carolina

Marion County

B. F. Davis owned a plantation named Ella’s Grove on the Pee Dee River. As a Confederate soldier, he was captured by Federal troops. Upon his return, he started a store on Ella’s Grove.

Once the river was no longer needed to transport goods, the wooden store was moved closer to town near Centenary. Eventually the brick store was built by his sons. This is what’s left of what can be considered a ghost town.
