Built as a church in 1855, this building was converted to a general store a few years later and has been in business ever since.

In the winter, people come in for coffee and donuts around the coal stove. In the summer, the outside benches fill with patrons reading newspapers and sipping drinks. Each Christmas season, an old fashioned caroling get-together is held here.

Owner Ray Hebert could have become part of his family's Massachusetts candy-making business, but he wanted to keep his craft on a smaller scale. So, he opened Stage Stop Candy, where all of the candy is made on the premises, and he invented the cranberry cordial (which is like a cherry cordial except with cranberries). It became a local hit, along with seven flavors of truffles, peanut brittle, molded chocolate and other rich treats. Stop in for just a piece or order an entire gift basket.
