A community cornerstone – a general store in 1790, the town’s first pharmacy in 1877, and later a soda fountain where townspeople would gather. Now, this historic building has been lovingly repurposed into an elegant Bed & Breakfast. Three guest rooms feature four-poster beds with luxurious Italian linens, modern oversized showers, and gas fireplaces. As a nod to the soda counter, today’s patrons are tempted by Italian gelato, made daily on the premises.
