History and time has stood still here at this place! Original old wood floors, feed scales, old times Post Office Boxes. Lots of food and gifts. Don’t miss their Annex down the street. Equally as cool but with lots of clothes very reasonably priced.

We loved shopping at the Mast General Store. It has a vast variety of items, including many historic products. There is something here for everyone. It took us over two hours to look through it. We highly recommend it to travelers in this area.

We appreciate the review sherry_f_h. Hope you can come back soon - my guess is you'll see things next time that you didn't see the first time!

This is a quaint little store that has retro toys, clothes, and plenty of unique knick knacks . But the best part is all the different types of candies. Can be a bit pricey but it is a tourist attraction.
