Welcome to Possum Junction, Indiana.
Somewhere between Evansville and Louisville on Gethsemane Church Road, there is the remains of Possum Junction. At a crossroad, a few abandoned buildings and rusted cars are all that remains. The last building to show any signs of life was the General Store...even it is closed now. A teenagers growing up in Possum Junction must have come here to meet their friends before they left more exciting venues. At the Possum Junction General Store...one could order a pizza or wings while picking up some night crawlers for the fishing hole and gassing up the truck...now that is full service!
As I was taking the picture, I heard a voice over my shoulder..."that ud be a good beness for somebody to buy"....I turned to a man on a backhoe..."there's been 5 or 6 people stop there just since I've been here". I nodded, got back in the Subaru and drove off...leaving Possum Junction just as I had found it. As I looked in my rear view mirror...someone pulled into the Possum General Store parking lot. I thought to myself...what a great episode for the Twilight Zone.
