I saw this old general store in the small town of Burnips. It’s located southwest of Grand Rapids and got its start in the 1850s when James Burnip settled in the area. He built a general store and the intersection that it sat on was known as Burnip’s Corners. In time the town became to be just Burnips.
This is probably not the store that James Burnips built but I could imagine back in the day getting an ice cold bottle of Faygo out of the cooler and sitting on the porch on a hot Michigan summer day.
