Back in 1892, a fellow named Evan Pell purchased the land where this restaurant now sits for $27.  In the years after that, the building was used as a school, a post office, a tack shop, and a private dwelling for such characters as Uncle Bubba Bryson, Wimp Davis, and others. In 1971, the Purple Onion Shoppe was opened by Ske Dick as an outdoor deli-style restaurant. Eight years later, Scott and Brien Peterkin purchased the property and formed the Cornucopia Restaurant, or, as the locals call it, “The Corn,” or “Cashiers’ Favorite Porch.”
