Phelps General Store is one of 5 properties included in the Palmyra Historical Society's Museums. A guided tour of all 5 sites starts at the Historical Museum on Market Street. Cost is $7 per person and tour takes about 1 1/2 hours. The first location includes several different rooms, on 2 floors, with different and interesting information and items of historical interest - local and otherwise. For example, there is a picture of Winston Churchill's grandmother - his maternal grandparents were married and buried in Palmyra. One room contains appliances and kitchen utensils used "back in the day." And there is much more. The guide points out some things of interest, but guests are encouraged to spend times exploring on their own. One item on display, which I found a bit creepy, was a wreath made of human hair, from all stages of a woman's life. 3 other properties are adjacent to the main building - a replica of an Erie Canal depot (town of Palmyra is located on the Erie Canal); a print shop, with all kinds of old printing equipment, typesets, etc; and the Phelps General Store. The Store was my favorite of the buildings. It was a grocery store operated for several years by the Phelps family, closed up right before WW II, to avoid rationing restrictions - most of the items in the store were there on the day it closed, including some eggs - fascinating! This building also has the house of the Phelps family - which was occupied until the 1970's by one of the women, who lived there without electricity, running water and with her 15 cats! Finally, about 1 block away, is the Alling Coverlet Museum, where we were shown a short video of the history of coverlets and were able to view 60 coverlets from the collection of over 200 (rotated yearly). This museum also housed original looms and a quilt exhibit, as well as a gift shop with reasonably priced unique items (e.g. pillows made from the worn coverlets - $22) I highly recommend a visit to these historical properties!
