St. James General Store

I paid a visit to the St. James General Store yesterday, a wonderful place to browse, especially at this season. It's been there since 1857. I advise you to take home some of their famous chocolate chip cookies, the best I've ever tasted.
The St. James General Store, located on Moriches Road, is said to be the oldest continuously operating general store in the United States. It and a number of other historic structures were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as Saint James District.(Wikipedia)
