Displays in the Lillicrapp Welcome Center

General Store Display at the Lillicrapp HouseLife's a little easier than it was back then, but the pleasure of a trip to the General Store remains. Relax with a game of checkers, check out the latest seeds, imagine how you would look in the latest fashionable dress. The main room in the Lillicrapp House General Store Display at the Lillicrapp Housefeatures many artifacts that represent how a general store looked plus photography of general stores that used to be in the Richfield area. Be sure to see the new Farming exhibit at the upcoming RHS events.

The large sunny room west of the dining/parlor used to be a summer kitchen. Photography from around the Richfield area is the theme of this room giving you that nostalgic feeling of days gone by. There is a very interesting display of cameras to go along with the photography.

Many items have already been gathered. However, several more are needed to make the exhibit complete.
