Housed in the Barrett-Jones building along historic Main Street Westminster, SC, the General Store Museum, a branch location of Oconee History Museum, displays a vast collection of historic artifacts from the original England’s General Merchandise store. Other items are on display showcasing the history of Westminster and surrounding areas in Southern Oconee County.
The original general store building (2 blocks west on Main Street) was built in 1908, and England’s General Merchandise opened for business at that time. For decades, the downtown general store carried everything its customers might ever need or want including the “Flymo” hovering lawnmower, Blue Horse notebook paper, saddle shoes, and much much more! For over a 100 years the shopkeepers accumulated a collection of merchandise spanning the entire twentieth century. The last shopkeeper, William “Dub” England, ceased store operations in the early 1980s, opening his collection as a museum until his passing in 2005.
