Built In 1901, Virginia’s Middlebrook Mercantile Is An Old Fashioned General Store You’ll Love To Visit
Virginia has no shortage of unique general stores, many of which act as a passage to the days of yore. One primary example is the Middlebrook Mercantile, housed in a building that dates back to 1901. Despite being closed for a brief period, the store has re-opened under the new name of Middlebrook Mercantile (formerly the Middlebrook General Store). Step inside and you’ll find yourself immersed in a local and historic treasure. Whether you’re shopping for a one-of-a-kind handmade product or have never frequented a general store before, you’ll find this experience to be enriching.
