LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The Walker family founded Walker’s Grocery at the corner of East Kentucky and South Cumberland Avenues in the 1950s while in 1980, Bill and Vickie Van Etten opened the county’s very first McDonald’s at Woodson Mall.
The buildings have housed different businesses over the years since the Walkers and Van Ettens moved on. Over the weekend new businesses started up in those fabled locations.
