    While you were visiting and taking great photos of Loleta, I hope you made time to visit the cheese factory. I’m assuming it still exists, since I haven’t been over that way in years.

      Yep, it’s still there. They also have a grilled cheese restaurant that I didn’t have time to try but I hear is wonderful.

    Matt, was there a date on the building that showed when it was built? Love the architecture.

    • Matthew Grigsby says:

      There was a date but I honestly don’t remember. According to the National Register of Historic Places it was built in 1920. It still has many of its original features, but has not been a bank for many years. I wanted to take photos of the inside but the windows were pretty dusty.
