Old Mission General Store

The Old Mission General Store is a wonderful throwback to stores common during the 1800s. They were the architectural and functional successors to the old trading posts of the American frontier.  

Opening more than 160 years ago, this humble building is much more than a convenient place to stop for a cold soda and a quick bite to eat. The store is a historical treasure, as it’s the oldest post office in one place and in one room in the state of  Michigan. It’s also the first retail general store between Fort Wayne and Mackinaw.
