Bicentennial Kick Off Event!!!

Well, it was just 200 years ago when Ira Evans bought the building and started a general store that is now Brown & Hopkins Country Store!

Here is a circa 1930's photo of William F. Hopkins (left) and James L. Brown (center), and unknown clerk amidst the offerings at the time.....Do you see the Mary Janes!!???
Yup, we still have those!! Well, not the same ones! See, somethings never change!

Well there have been a few changes.....

For one, there is no longer a spit box...thank goodness!!!

And we don't sell ammo.....or tobacco products! Both very popular items in the circa 1900 inventory ledger on display at the front of the shop.

Here are the details of our
