   Founded in 1809, Brown & Hopkins Country Store has been in continuous operation making it one of America's oldest country stores! Two floors filled to the brim...a country shoppers paradise! We feature gourmet specialties from New England, RI Honey (great for allergies), RI Maple Syrup, and the best fudge you ever tasted!Visit our main floor which features a self serve cafe (100% of the donations for coffee, tea or cocoa go to the local charity of the month), over 6 candle lines, an old fashioned candy counter and a ladies boutique!The second floor features several room settings....a patriotic room, a curtain and textile room, a bedroom, and a gathering room...so many folks tell us how they'd like to move in! We hope you'll visit soon...we can't wait to make you feel at home!

Brown and Hopkins Country Store is one of America's oldest country stores, having existed since the early 1800's. It is located in downtown Chepachet Rhode Island among a grouping of old buildings.

Step into Brown n Hopkins and step back in time. Enjoy the "penny" candy counter, browse the antiques, taste some food samples including Stonewall Kitchens products, buy a gift or a candle. No trip to Chepachet is complete without a stop here.

For all that's it's a very historic store, none of that history is on display inside the store. It's a very heavily stocked gift store with a wide variety of goods. You could easily find a gift for anyone here.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you missed our memorabilia case that holds allot of historic items. We also have the area near our t-shirts that holds many old newspaper articles. Did you happen to see our inventory ledger from 1900? That is always a fun book to look at! There is always so many other things... More

This store is like a magazine come to life. It is full of every possible country-style home decorative accent you can imagine. From candles to quilts to plaques, to lighting, you will not be disappointed. It is the exact kind of place I could stay for ages with my girlfriends. The building is stunning inside and the old general store... More
