The Brick Store is the "Oldest General Store in America". With fresh fudge made multiple times a week, on-premises made smoked sausage and cheese and an old-fashioned candy counter with room for Hoop-skirts - The Brick Store is an enjoyable visit. Next door is The Hop Ice Cream Parlor - not only ice cream, but a GREAT Rock and Roll memorabilia store (check out the 45's on the ceiling and many signed items by greats).

Bath, NH has three sights that you should not miss, all : The Brick Store (Oldest General Store in America), At the Hop Ice Cream Parlor (next door) right out of the 50's, and one of the biggest covered bridges in NH. Park anywhere around the square, it's all located together. In any case, the other reviews are right on target; millions of calories in great snacks and treats at the store; the best selection we've ever found of weather vanes for barns and other Americana....
We really enjoyed visiting and have returned on a number of times-- show up hungry!

Locally smoked bacon and cheese that is excellent, as well as home made donuts and other baked goods. Lots of souvenirs. Old 19th century store with original board floors and fixtures. All of the home made food is excellent.

This is supposed to be the oldest continuous operating General store in the US. Rather a disappointment, as it turned out to be more a gift shop with kitsch, than a store full of interesting odds and ends. The Placerville Hardware store in California is much larger and has a large variety of articles for the home, just like general stores used to. The Brick does have an attached 1950/60s ice cream shop, At the Hop, which had Hershey’s ice cream for reasonable prices, child size ($.99), small ($1.69), and large ($2.49). Unfortunately, the ice cream had melted and refroze that previous evening, and so we skipped the treat.
