This Delightful General Store In New York Will Have You Longing For The Past
For many of us, spending the day diving into the past is something we thoroughly enjoy. Instead of shopping at the mall, we’d much rather make a visit to one of New York’s many
charming general stores. If you thought that you had managed to already cross off all of these vintage shops from your bucket list, then think again! We have on more delightful location that that you’re going to want to take a trip to.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Head out to Columbia County and make a visit to the National Historic District of Hillsdale.
The first commercial building to be restored in town, the Hillsdale General Store dates back to 1855.
Formerly a retail store that was known as Dimmick's, the shop was long a vital part of the town during the late 19th century and early 20th centuries.
Over the years, the building changed from being a grocery store to a sports shop, with its last gig being a video store.
Until finally the building came back into the right hands and was completely and carefully restored by its current owners.
Overflowing with charm, the shop even features a friendly face who goes by the name of Window William!
Embracing the long history behind this delightful building, the Hillsdale General Store features a variety of items.
From vintage finds that you won't stumble across in big-box stores to seasonal gifts that you won't be able to turn down, there's something here for everyone.
The general store is keen on featuring American-made goods, with tons of items in the shop coming from the local area.
But one of our favorite parts about this store that instantly takes us back in time is the old-fashioned candy bar.
Fully equipped with all of your favorite nostalgic treats, your sweet tooth will thank you for paying a visit to this place.
Another piece of nostalgia that you'll frequently see parked outside of the store? Old Henry the vintage vehicle of your dreams.
So what are you waiting for? Travel through time and take a trip to the Hillsdale General Store!
