Built in 1892 and nestled in a charming corner of Hwy 127, this is a great spot to taste some decadent, chewy homemade fudge. The store is known for the “Pig” in the back--it’s the name of a card game played daily
by locals. You’ll “hear the bacon fryin'” when someone is getting close to winning; you may smell it too, as they serve hot meals and other country
goodies and treats.
The card game “Pig,” original to Fentress and Pickett Counties has
been passed down through generations. The World PIG Championship is held each February at Forbus General Store in Pall Mall, Tennessee. Track down the rules online or come to the “Learning Tables” at the tournament.
