Cecil’s General Store is located on Indian Bridge Road near the junction with Maryland Route 5 in what has become known as the Cecil’s Mill Historic District.  There has been a mill located across the road since the mid-18th century (we will look at the mill in the next post).  The General Store dates from 1906 and is currently operated by the Crafts Guild of St. Mary’s County.

The age of the General Store and the various items outside gave me the idea to try to recreate a version of the opening image as if the picture was captured when the building was first constructed.

  1. Wow, that is some vivid red in the first image. I also am liking the texture effect you added to the second. Quality work!
