One of the social centers of villages was the general store. Here the citizens gathered to discuss local and national news, to collect mail from near and far and to deliberate over the or exchange of commodities or luxuries. The store stocked a supply of food and clothing as well as housewares and medicines for man and beast.

Two early Fond du Lac stores furnished many of the artifacts and displays.
The General Store is located at Historic Galloway House & Village at 336 Old Pioneer Road, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin 54935.

Lots of interesting displays inside -- I focused on some of the cool posters:

 Nightmares are made of these!!
