This is Ted Smallwood’s store-turned-museum in the Everglades. It’s been there since 1906, and used to serve as the community’s post office, grade school and trading post. Now, the museum is in danger of closing due to an ongoing 3-year legal battle with a developer. The only road leading to the store bisects the land owned by the developer, which plans to do away with the road.
