Excellent snapshot of typical “ country company store” for a look into old sharefarm life. Very interesting view of actual materials of a fully stock company store of early 1900

This general store should be visited by everyone. Old folks to remember and youngsters to see how it used to be.. The docent, Elaine, a local lady, was wonderful and really made this stop exceptional.

Tupper Museum has all the original contents of a store from the 40's. Also has a collection of handmade Coushatta pine needle baskets from the 40's. Fabulous! Worth a stop.

Small museum with lots of pre-1940s items. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The attached telephone museum was very interesting. If you go, don't miss the mural - it changes views as you walk past it!

See the items you, and perhaps your parents and grandparents shopped for in the original store setting.

My wife and I visited the Tupper Museum this week. I highly recommend this attraction. This museum is in reality an old store which is unique in that the store goods were left untouched for many years. The staff members there are very knowledgeable and...More
