Inscription.  Ca. 1922 a country store was moved from Myrtis, La to this location to serve as the new commissary for the J.W. Lynn Plantation. At it's peak over 300 hundred families lived and worked on the plantation, with the commissary serving as the general store, office and headquarters for the plantation. This likeness of the original commissary was built in tribute by J.W. Lynn's grandson, Richard H. Wilcox, Jr in 2015.
