Just off route 25 A a few blocks. Do drive the speed limit. The local police here are looking for any excuse to pump up the towns revenue. The Store gives you a look back at how things were many years ago. Fun inexpensive penny...More

This is a historical location, with people dressed in period clothes, willing to teach you the history of the building. They have home goods, penny candy, a toy room in the back, and books written by local authors upstairs. A great place to visit.

Billed as maybe the oldest continuously run country store in the US, this was an interesting place to visit. Much like Kelly's Country Store on Grand Island, NY, this place is filled with lots of penny-candy, souvenirs, interesting toys, Christmas decorations, and more...some old-fashioned things...More

This store is so much fun to visit. Full of history and little knick knacks. Definitely have to stop by here if you're in town. Tons of little gifts to pick up and choose from. Also have a wonderful array of candy.
