The Oldest General Store In America Is Right Here In New Hampshire And You Have to Visit

There’s something about a good old-fashioned general store that’s just undeniably New England – stepping into one, with their candy jars and pickle barrels, just brings you straight back in time. That’s especially true at the Brick Store in Bath, New Hampshire – it’s been in operation since 1790, making it the oldest continuously operating general store in the entire country, and on the National Register of Historic Places! If you haven’t yet visited this amazing spot, make your plans as soon as you can.
