“Old Central School and Shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We checked out the old school, looked through all of the shops. The room devoted to Judy Garland was interesting. Enjoyed the artisan shop that sold wood items and pottery. The old school itself was unique with it's old oak staircases and woodwork.

“Candles!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

They carry the best candles in the world. Way better than Yankee candles. They are made right here in Minnesota. If you get the chance stop in and ask about Minnesota Soy Candle Company candles.

“Quick stop, but the place has a good start.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Stopped in thinking there was an antique store, but there is not. It consists of an art gallery and museum, and pastry/coffee/sandwich shop. The buidling itself is a jewell, and with time, this will be a really interesting attraction. We justd had latte's and bran muffin at the pastry shop, and while I think they are getting used to making custom orders llike latter, the quality was excellent.

“Lovely shops, quiet and informative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

If you need a quiet place to hang out for a few hours, try the Old Central School. You'll enjoy the quilt shop and gallery as well as the museum on the top floor. I love old schools.
