Historic Bath General Store Up For Auction

The Brick Store in Bath

A historic general store and tourist attraction in New Hampshire that closed earlier this year is up for auction.

The Brick Store in Bath was built in the late 1700s or early 1800s. It closed after several years of financial hardship, and is up for auction on Wednesday.

The store is believed to be one of the oldest continually-operated general stores in America.

There's also a gift shop and a 1950s-style ice cream shop on the property, along with space formerly used as an art studio and apartment.

Auctioneer Paul McInnis Inc. lists its assessed real estate value as $326,400.
