Located at 36688 New Lancaster Road in Paola, KS, the general store was originally built in 1874, rebuilt after a fire in 1903, and most recently rebuilt in 2014. At the beginning of the most recent renovations, the building didn’t even have water service or indoor plumbing.

The interior is nearly original with tin ceilings, wood floors and the original shelving. Kristin reported she was able to have the shelf paint color matched to an original century plus old green color.
