Ebenezer Big Store, Lexington – Mississippi Mondays August 31, 2020

For today’s Mississippi Mondays post, I looked at Lexington in Holmes County, and chose Ebenezer Big Store – https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mississippi/visit-hidden-ms-store-for-satisfying-meal/ as this week’s choice. On Facebook, it’s listed as Ebenezer Country Store. Going to look for it by both names. Was surprised at little I found even using both big and country. I am a big barbecue fan and I will often try barbecue places I hear about if they are nearby. It’s not the only store listed under this name so I had to weed out other states in the process of looking for this store.

I am not seeing an official website, other than the Chamber of Commerce. This took a lot longer than expected. I was surprised to find so little about the museum. I will update it if I can find an actual physical address.
