Husband Loved It
This store has so many unique and historic items. My husband really wanted to go and I reluctantly went along. However, it was really, really good. The history was amazing. No other museum has such authenticity.
Oldest store museum
Our guide was absolutely wonderful. This tour will keep children, teens and adults alike entertained. They have tons of things that they guide shows you how they were used. It is very interactive and he gets all the kids involved. This is a must see if you are visiting At Augustine..
Very very interesting.
The proprietors were very friendly and knowledgeable about the era. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing early non-treadle sewing machines, early vacuums, wringer washers and a bike with a huge front wheel, small back wheel, among other things. I never knew one had to have a drivers license to actually ride those things. Well worth the stop!!
A step back in time...
Loved visiting this old store and stepping back in time to the Victorian time. It was neat to see all the old packages and gadgets to make life better and see how far they have come. The tour guides were great and really made you feel like you had stepped back in time. We visited on June 25 in the afternoon.
