Editorial Reviews

Review

....Back in the day, the country store was the place to be. It was the center, the heart, of a town: a place to get mail, spices, gossip, tobacco or all of the above....

"This book is a celebration of that heritage," Heald said....

Heald has more than 40 titles under his belt. But in Old Country Stores of New Hampshire, the Plymouth State History Professor has attempted to capture not only the stories of the old country stores, but their very essence....

The book is a another of Heald's love stories, really. When Heald, who holds degrees from Boston University, the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Columbia Pacific University, moved to New Hampshire, he became smitten with the state and documented the love affair in odes to a variety of his favorite things about the state....

To that end, he visited every country store in every town, city and hamlet in New Hampshire. And that's what the book is, he said, a true reporting of each store s history, along with what he experienced. In his travels he visited the country store in Bath, believed to be the oldest existing country store in the nation. He tasted the sweets of Fadden's General Store and Sugarhouse in North Woodstock and the Old Country Store in Moultonboro, which started out life as a tavern....

But these stores won't be around forever, although out-of-towners are buying some of them in a nostalgic preservation effort, Heald said. When or if they go, Heald hopes that the book will be a way of keeping the legacy of the country store alive....

--Melanie Plenda, Concord Monitor

This book is so interesting, reminding me of childhood family trips to local country stores. The pictures are great, articles draw you to wanting to visit them & see how general stores were run in the 'good old days', before our big grocery stores invaded our neighborhoods! I love living in New England & having these places remind me of eras gone by.
