Treasured 100-Year-Old Building Re-Opens as Johnson’s Antiques
Pike County, KY – On April 15, 2023, the community of Pike County came together to celebrate the grand reopening of a treasured 100-year-old building in Wolfpit. The former general store has been transformed into Johnson’s Antiques, a new destination for antique collectors and history buffs.
The grand reopening was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and hot dog cookout that brought together residents, business owners, and community leaders.
