The Sherman Historical Society has just announced the re-opening of The Old Store located in the heart of the bucolic town of Sherman on Rte. 37. Beginning May 28 The Old Store will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. In light of the pandemic, the Historical Society has added air filtration machines as well as a touchless hand sanitizer station and sneeze guards at the counter. Staff will continue to wear masks and asks that customers do as well out of an abundance of caution.
The Old Store and Gift Shop is filled to the brim with all manner of goodies to purchase. It is owned by the Sherman Historical Society and all proceeds support the maintenance and improvement to the building. The Old Store is located in a mercantile that once belonged to David Northrop Jr. and dates to 1829. This store-museum gives visitors a chance to reminisce on how the old Mercantile sold items for every need imaginable. A second floor gallery has rotating historical exhibitions and art shows. Items of special interest include several wonderful books about the history and homes of this fascinating community.
Save the date for the popular Barn Sale that is taking place this year on August 13 – 15. This three day sale offers a fascinating selection of antiques, collectibles, furniture, books, dishes, china, household items, children’s toys and much more.
