Hickory Flat is one of the oldest communities in Cherokee County and in recent years has experienced tremendous growth. As a result, most of the historic buildings in the community have been lost. Hickory Flat Store and Masonic Hall is one of the last remaining historic buildings that once supported a thriving farm community.  This former store, gas station and Masonic Hall was built in 1950 on the intersection of Hwy 140 and Cherokee Drive. The store was owned by the Quarles family, who had a home across the street, and it was run by Jim and Myrtie Pinyan and Laurence Turner, among others. Originally the second floor of the store was used as a Masonic Hall and the Hickory Flat Masons installed the cornerstone when it was built. This brick building replaced an earlier wood structure that stood on one the four corners that was the epicenter of historic Hickory Flat.

The site is now threatened by new development and plans to build a Chick-fil-A. We hope that this petition will convince Chick-fil-A corporate offices to integrate the existing building into their new site plans.
