Welcome to the


The Newtown General Store was built in 1847, as were many mercantile shops of the time. It was a place for town residents to purchase many of the day to day staples needed for everyday life, as well as a place to congregate and discuss many aspects of living in the mid-19th century.

Today local residents still come in and talk about life in the early 21st century, but now the Newtown General Store is a full-service delicatessen. It offers many original breakfast, lunch and snack options to satisfy almost any type of appetite. Whether you live locally or are just driving through, stop in and take a step back in time.
