Lauber's General Store

Candy Counter Lauber's General Store

Before the days of large super stores, there was the General Store. Villagers could buy everything from food to fabric, pick up their mail, purchase gifts and even catch up on the news of the community, all in one stop. In our General Store, you can shop for a wide selection of gifts, treats and treasures from collectible dolls, tins and hard-to-find kitchen items to "penny" candy and caramel corn and rabbit furs and more!

April–October: Monday–Saturday 10 am–5 pm; Sunday noon–4 pm
November–December: Monday–Saturday, 10 am–5 pm
January–late March: Closed.  Please ask in the Gift Shop if you need something from General Store.
