Paul Bruhn, Executive Director, Preservation Trust of VT


fter a long hiatus, the general store that bears the family name and was the hub of this small community of 1,100 for more than 150 years is open for business once again.

The store closed in 1992 but before she died eight years ago, Pierce entrusted the white, wood-frame building and property to the Preservation Trust of Vermont with the express purpose of reopening the store one day.

For those wanting to take a step back in time, we welcome you to learn more about this historic landmark and the Pierce family. In the store, check out the fancy old scale, cash register, photographs and other antiques displayed throughout.

Come for a visit and chat with our staff and volunteers about this unique cooperative general store. We hope to see you soon!
