Ruddy’s General Store Museum is a recreation of a 1930s general store assembled by collector Jim Ruddy. Now one of the area’s most popular attractions, Ruddy has amassed a collection that covers nearly a century of Americana. Not only is the packaging original, but about 60 percent of the items still hold their original contents. Unfortunately, none of the goods inside are for sale and truly act as exhibits detailing the history of American culture. 

Update: In March of 2020 Ruddy’s closed “temporarily” and as of March 2023 had not reopened. You can still peek in through the windows though.
