  • It was one of the first River Posts in our area for trade. It’s an antique building you can go in & see what life was like back then. It does have a lot of steps, not easy for handicap people to get t...  more »

  • The only reason I stopped is because my great grandpa ran a barge to the store in the 1800's. Store was closed after the Railroad came through. All original stock inside the store.
  • Totally awesome! Cool for all ages! Strongly recommend
  • I recall visiting it in 1970. I often thought about returning the stuff my dad stole from the garage. It was on the east side with a attic full. I think it was owned by Masapoust then. I recall that late summer night after dusk i was by the front garage and she came out the front to feed the kitties. Scared me stiff. It was really stupid.
  • Step back in time. Knowledgeable staff. Great gift shop. Cool place.
  • Before making a special trip to see the Harkin Store, there is a per person fee involved to get in. I saw a sign for the store when visiting a local state park. I made the trip over to see what the store had to offer. When I got to the top of the steps, a gentleman had stopped me and said there was a fee to get in. I didn't have cash on me, but I doubt I would have paid the fee anyway. I was quite sad to see about 12 - 15 other people forced to turn around due to the cost and/or not having cash. Even though it was out of my way, the scenic byway drive was enjoyable.
