  • The Oldest Store Museum re-creates the original St. Augustine general store that was operated by C.F. Hamblen in 1908. Exploring this extensive collection of authentic products is like stepping into a Sears and Roebuck catalog from the early 20th century.

    Living history tour guides act the parts of clerks and salesmen as they demonstrate the latest inventions for turn-of-the-century “modern” living -- everything from tonics to unicycles to a goat-powered washing machine. The collection features vintage farm equipment, collars and corsets, "health underwear", a corn sheller and a grain thresher and all sorts of elixirs, including the ever-popular worm syrup.

    The Museum opens at 9 a.m. daily. Tours start every twenty minutes, with the last tour at 4:30 p.m.
