So it wasn't the Wildwood Store, then? How did that story get screwed up?

mcma111,

I think you have pictures of two different places. The Platina Store gas pump was off to the side of the building (to the right of the picture you have above). Whereas the burned building picture sure looks like the Wildwood Store. That's a real shame.

Hopefully they will be back but it never seemed to be a booming business before. Fortunate that it happened in the winter. If it was summer it might have taken out that end of Wildwood Road to match what happened at the other end last summer.

Mad River Burger Bar, just no gas.

The Wildwood store I think had been going downhill according to the lady at the Platina store last summer. Always out of gas, open when they felt like it etc....
