THE COUNTRY STORE AND GIFT SHOP
The Country Store is open during regular visiting hours of The Milford Historical Society and special events. We carry children's toys, books on Milford's history, maps of old Milford, crafts and gifts. The Country Store also has an exhibit of many old grocery containers and store-related items.
- The toys in the store don't need batteries.
- All ages enjoy watching the blocks flip over each other on a jacob's ladder from the store.
- Try reliving what a colonial school was like with a quill pen & ink from our Country Store. Only 6 feathers on a goose are suitable for use as pens. You have to be careful how hard you press while writing. Children as young as 12 learned to cut and trim their quill pens with a penknife.
- Other historical gifts include Indian points (arrow heads), prisms to hang in the window panes, colonial hats, dominoes and pick up sticks.
