Developed from trading posts as travelers settled throughout the state, they are recognizable for their vast array of merchandise and a fragrant blend of tobacco, spices and coffee.

The country store became the center of the community, where residents could play checkers, mail letters, attend town meetings and shop. They are still fixtures in many towns today, including the Brick Country Store in Bath, considered to be the oldest in the United States, dating back to 1790- Faddens General Store and Sugarhouse in North Woodstock, which produces award-winning maple syrup- and the Old Country Store in Moultonborough, which had its beginnings as a tavern.

Historian Bruce D. Heald, PhD, chronicles New Hampshires historic country stores and the keepers behind these unique local landmarks.
