1. General Store Marker
Inscription.

For many years, this building served as the Shelburne village post office before it was moved to the Museum intact, on a specially designed railroad track running down Route 7. The ground floor re-creates a late 19th-century general store, post office, barber shop, and tap room, or barroom. The building's second level showcases typical dentist's, physician's, and optometrist's offices.
 
Erected by the Shelburne Museum.
