General Store

4th of July in the General Store (Display)

July 4 - Labor Day

Celebrate the Birth of our Nation with a patriotic display.  Come peruse the store to see 1920s merchandise you could have purchased for your Independence Day party. Items include patriotic ready-made decorations, create-your-own crafts, costumes, glassware, and even baked goods.

The General Store was the cornerstone for any community. It not only offered a great variety of merchandise, food, and necessities in a one-stop shop setting, but it also served as a meeting place where people congregated regularly to socialize and conduct business.
