Old Saint Augustine Village in St. Augustine, Florida, is one of the most historic regions of the city.
St. Augustine's Oldest Store Museum, once an operating general store, contains over 100,000 items from the turn-of-the-century. This wide variety of goods came from the stock of the original store. Bikes, tools, guns, household goods, medicines and hardware are all on display. A model T truck, conestoga wagon and steam tractor are also among the unexpected treasures in the museum. The old store is as what you would imagine, the walmart of its day. Old washing machines, old bicycles, an old school milk shake machine and kitchen utensils. It takes you back and allows you to see how things have progressed to today.
A great deal of time, effort, and money have been put into St. Augustine's Oldest Store Museum. I can't think of anyone who would not be entertained and educated by it.
