Maine History Runs Deeps At This Beloved Middle-Of-Nowhere General Store

In a state as old as Maine, it’s never a surprise when we learn something new about our deep history. From old inns to beautiful museums, Mainers love to celebrate all the reasons why we exist today. The people we are and the places we visit are all the result of ingenuity and hard work stemming from those who came before us. This little general store in Caribou is no exception. Whether you live in northern Maine or somewhere else, you’ll want to know the story of how this store came to be!
