Established in 1831, the store began as a tavern, inn and mercantile store that served stagecoaches traveling between Rutherford and Lincoln counties. Today, this fifth-generation, old country store isn’t just any run-of-the-mill store. We’ve got what you need: the usual and unusual.

In 2002, the U.S. Department of the Interior inducted the General Store, the Washburn family estate (built in 1913), a classic wooden barn (built in 1915), and ten other buildings as a historic district for this quiet town.
