  • I stopped by to stroll through this store. It was like stepping back in time at certain areas of the store. Love the antiques sitting around. Very nice staff. Unique items with a high price.  more »
  • What a treat to visit an old hardware store from the 1800's Such a nice time looking around at all the old items. My favorite thing was the bins of marbles. It is currently a nice gift shop.  more »

  • Great piece of history and a downtown landmark. A must-visit for history lovers and locals alike. The owners have done incredible job of preserving the old "general store" feel and historical ambiance.
  • What a great slice of History! You can actually turn back the hands of time with a walk through this hardware store. They have a selection of gifts and unusual items for purchase. Whether you choose to purchase anything or not it is an interesting place to spend some time and try to remember what some of the items were actually used for. A lot of the original store has been maintained with its original stock and original pricing. The people there were friendly and helpful as well.
  • Really interesting. Like walking back into time. Be sure to chat with the staff at feont desk and look carefully at all the detail from the floor up.
  • Lovely store. A beautiful gift shop that is as full of history as most museums.
  • A great place to visit, from an historical prospective and a variety of merchandise for sale. Much of the old hardware store is preserved and some of it still operational. Highly recommend.
