The Old Country Store is just that, and old general store.

In 1777 General Jonathan Moulton sold this piece of land to Samuel Burnham “with barn frame thereon”. It was sold again in 1779 to George Freese, “trader”, Records of Bradbury Richardson, one of the first settlers, show transactions between the two – “labors for goods, July 30, 1781”. Hollands New Hampshire, printed in London, England March 1, 1784 shows the store as the only building in this part of town. The year the fieldwork was done is not known. The store is among the oldest in the country and also one of the oldest surviving businesses of any kind. It has been the scene of town meetings in the early 1800’s, and again in the 1900’s; the library; post office for over 100 years; and a stage stop.
