If you have ever wondered about consumerism in the early 1900s, then St. Augustine's Oldest Store Museum is for you. Step back in time in the oldest store in St. Augustine, Florida and discover all the latest time saving miracles.
Watch in amazement as the friendly clerks, butcher, and snake oil salesman demonstrate the very latest inventions for turn-of-the-century living. See steam-driven tractors and a goat powered washing machine! For any aches and pains get a lo-down on the latest tonics and elixirs, and learn about the notorious worm syrup.
See corsets for ladies, and collars for men. Watch a demonstration of the Edison Home Phonograph and its Morning Glory Horn, or of the newest model of corn sheller, learn about the vast guns and ammunitions industry.
The Oldest Store Museum in Saint Augustine is one of the most unique attractions in South Florida, and offers a great insight into the consumer needs of a bygone age.
