A store site since 1845 and in the Penn family since 1850, Penn's Store is the oldest country store in America in continuous ownership and operation by the same family. The sagging floor, hand rubbed countertops, glass showcases and memorabilia are testaments to its history and age. On cold days, the Warm Morning Model 521 wood/coal stove provides solace for those coming by to sit a spell or to trade. Locals play porch music on occasion.
