A stop at the Pakenham General Store for art, food AND heritage is always a highlight of the Maple Run Tour.
Established in the early 1840’s by Archibald McArthur and Robert Brown, the Pakenham General Store is considered to be one of the oldest continually operated general stores in North America. It features both Regency and Classic Revival architectural styles.
The store is like a step back in time with its charming wood floors, displays of vintage grocery tins, and original wooden counters, and still sells a range of groceries, including freshly-baked bread, special maple baking, local cheese, and of course, local maple syrup and maple products. And not to forget – sticky buns!
