The Country Store Museum at Red Men’s Hall is now open Sundays from 1:30-4pm.    The Country Store Museum is located on the ground floor of Red Men’s Hall, housing the ‘Historian’s collection of post 1870 manufactured goods in a setting of fixtures  from the old Niantic Store. It exhibits a late 19th century general store where  local families shopped for necessities. Nostalgia pervades this museum with its  clutter. Yard goods, crockery, ground coffee, tobacco, clothing, garden  implements and an apothecary shop surround a pot belly stove where a friendly  game of checkers could be played next to the spittoon.

The shelves of The  Country Store Museum are stocked with fabric on bolts, sewing accessories and lace,  hardware, blue Mason jars, kerosene lamp globes and period boxes of goods.  Portrayed at the store is country commerce bartered homemade soap, baskets, home grown produce as well as pottery and tin ware from local tradesmen. The museum’s  original 1890 ledger from the Hereford Store reveals a great deal of this  barter.
