An old-fashioned grocery and mercantile store, built in 1895, has been restored in State Center, Iowa. The original fixtures and the early oak cabinetry are still in place. Visitors can study the collection of period grocery items and dry goods. The store originally was a turn-of-the-century grocery and dry goods store. Most of the antique fixtures remain, and the museum today preserves the look and feel of what was commonplace in State Center from 1895 until it closed in the 1980s.
