| ||General Store |
The General Store would sell items that the local residents needed, such as hardware, pottery, dishes, fabric, sewing notions, some store made clothes, tin ware, and food items such as flour, sugar, spices, molasses, canned food, whiskey, etc. Transportation, first the canals and then the railroads, permitted stores such as this one to offer goods from all over the world. Imports from Europe and the Orient would have been sold. Our store also serves as the Village post office.
