Overview
More
The Brick Store has been in business since at least 1790, making it America's oldest continuously operated general store. It is located in Bath, New Hampshire -- a quintessential New England village including the town common with war memorial, the picturesque white steepled church, and three historic covered bridges. As a true general store, The Brick Store offers a little bit of everything including Nancy's delicious homemade fudge, and their nationally famous Jim's Smokehouse products.

I'd been here a few times before it was auctioned off a year ago. The new owners haven't hurt it any. It's a typical New England general store, albeit the most historic one. It's more of a tourist attraction, like a lot of NE general...More

Sub roll or bulky roll delicious thick sandwiches and their own old fashioned root beer. Grab their homemade fudge for dessert. Take a chunk of smoked cheese or smoked pepperoni done right there at the store. The oldest operating general store for a reason
