I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

Lots of things that bring back fond memories. Rather expensive but can certainly find a treasure. Do go.

You might find something in this store you never knew you needed! :) Ice cold cokes at the front door were amazing.

Kaffie-Frederick's is a local icon. Not only will you find a unique selection of items (toys, housewares, etc.), but also you can find everyday necessities (nails, tools, get keys made). What I love most S the upstairs - especially during the Christmas season with all...More

This store, for visiting tourists, is a delightful look back to a time when the general mercantile store was the go to place for a community. For the locals, this is the place where, if you can't find it, they will get it for you...More

Yep, a general store... Not overly impressed. No postcards, no penny candy, no art, no food, no cold soda fountain, no restroom. 😡 Ok on the positive there were large wind chimes but a better displaying of them needed. Kids would find toys there (rubber...More

This historical hardware store cleverly combines items needed for home repair, nostalgic toys and games, outdoor supplies, and very tasteful home decor items upstairs. However, the star of the show is the landmark building itself. I loved the old wooden floors, high ceiling, and the...More
