Been meaning to check out the 1856 Country Store down in Centerville, which is a small village in the town of Barnstable. There has been a store on that site since, well, 1856.
I have a pic from the 1980s with the parties on each bench, so that goes back a long time.
So much candy!
Next door is a huge church. Should've gotten the name but I didn't.
Those little flags were made by kids on or near Earth Day.
Entrance to the Thrift Shop
Had to check out the old cemetery too, of course.
I would love to know the story behind these girls losing their lives at sea. The first Caroline P. was only 3 years old when she died in 1834. The second Caroline P. was born in 1834, and also lost at sea. Was the first Caroline's mother pregnant and named her baby after the first one that died? And for her to also to be lost at sea? I'm going to have to research that.
