General Store Museum

Take A Step Back in Time!

 

This 1860's era frame building, restored by the Landmark Preservation Society, houses the Roger C. Christensen collection of antique packaging and advertising art. Curated and maintained by the Cedarburg Cultural Center, the collection, which dates from the early 1900's through the 1940's, is believed to be one of the most extensive of its kind in the Midwest. Vintage grocery tins, apothecary items and dry goods are among the many items that evoke the essence of the old-time general store. This marvelous treasury of the past delights young and old alike. Come see the vintage treasures in the candy counter and share a chuckle over the outlandish claims on bottles of hair cream and health remedies! The Cedarburg Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce are located within the building, making it the perfect first stop on your visit to Cedarburg!
