Rhode Island’s Only True General Store Is A Beloved Local Treasure

Rhode Island is filled to the brim with historic buildings, monuments, houses, and folklore. So it’s pretty surprising that Rhody only has one true general store, especially since they were so prominent in America in the 1800s and early 1900s. But it’s true — you’ll only find one real, old-fashioned general store in the Ocean State. But once you take a peek inside the Summit General Store, you’ll realize that one is enough.
