Dickson Store Museum


Relive shopping in the 1930’s at the Dickson Store Museum. The experience begins as soon as you open the door to this quaint little store and the smell of pungent cheddar cheese and fresh ground coffee hit you. The museum is located on the same site in the original building and is restored to the 1930’s era. The store that housed the post office is located on the main floor with the typical living quarters upstairs. It was the hub of the community and offered an array of services including merchandise, credit, mail service, and gathering place.

Check out the unique design of the restored lumber shed that was a part of the barter system in the 1930’s economy. Costumed interpreters will be happy to take you on an informative tour, scoop you ice cream topped with a smile, or assist you in the gift shop that offers hand made items and published books by local artisans and authors.
