Nixon’s, Green Bank Inn and the Dreaded Green-Headed Fly – Monday’s Roundup

Print More

A couple of old but good stories from The Pine Barrens Tribune: Nixon’s General Store in Tabernacle is changing hands. It’s been run by Jack and Nancy McGinnis for 35 years. It was bought by Jack’s grandparents, Abner and “Babe” Nixon in 1956.

The new owners are Jinga and Ashwin Patel, who say they don’t plan on changing the place.

“The customers have been wonderful,” Jinga said. “But I’ve hardly gotten the chance to be at the register, so far, because of all the paperwork.”

Meanwhile the Green Bank Inn was declared a public safety hazard by the Washington Township Committee. According to the Township Clerk, the historic inn is owned by something called CoreLogic, which probably doesn’t even know it owns it.

Elsewhere in things that are green, and Piney-ish, Tim Hawk for, has a fun feature on greenheads, with cool pictures he took, including one old one (he didn’t take) of the horses working in the marshes wearing horse clothing to keep the bugs off.
