I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

Was expecting a throwback general store. This is a hardware store. Goods are what you would find at Home Depot.

Walk back in time at this store. There are items on the shelves that you will not see anywhere else. Toys from days gone by, hardware items that you just can't find at other hardware stores. More cast iron cookware than I even knew existed....More

This store has so much to offer. We loved reading about its history on signs displayed around the store. We bought lots of unique items from jewelry to baby gifts to Christmas decor. It has a little bit of everything.
