BATH — A historic general store and tourist attraction in New Hampshire that closed this year is up for auction next week.
The Brick Store in Bath, built sometime in the late 1700s or early 1800s, closed after several years of financial hardship. It's up for auction on Wednesday, July 13, at 11 a.m.
The store is believed to be one of the oldest general stores in America. It's located along U.S. Route 302 near the banks of the Ammonoosuc River.
There's also a gift shop and a 1950s-style ice cream shop along with space formerly used as an art studio and apartment. The property is at the entrance to the recently restored Bath Covered Bridge.
Auctioneer Paul McInnis Inc. lists its assessed real estate value as $326,400.
