That is the Lick Branch store at Switchback, WV. It is similar to
Boissevain because both stores were built by Pocahontas Fuel Co.
The present location is a large concrete slab which is on your left as you
are on US 52 driving from Elkhorn to Maybeury. On you right, about a 1/2
mile before the store is the old Elkhorn High School.
