“Historic General Store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

The “General Store” was built and operated by John Ralston from 1786 till his death in 1819, and last used as a General Store in the 1920’s. This historic one room store contained the Ralston Post Office from 1892 to 1941. In the early 1940’s the Ralston Historical Association acquired and restored the General Store and opened it as a museum in 1964. This small museum with its local history and collection of vintage artifacts is open June to October Sundays and Holidays from 1 or 2 to 4 pm.

We’ve driven by the General Store many times over the last 40 years and never stopped till last Sunday when we saw it was open. The volunteer member of the Ralston Historical Association who greeted us was very knowledgeable about the history of the store. It was well worth the visit to learn some local history.
