For a real taste of history, be sure to visit our Rockport General Store. A true historic gem, it has a nostalgic theme befitting Rockport's heritage. Built in 1905 the store, it played a vital role in the day to day life in Rockport. It maintained accounts for the local people. Being a small and secluded community, it was also a vital factor in keeping the villagers connected to the outside world. Much like other general stores of the past, Rockport`s provided the residents with goods which would otherwise be unattainable, and was therefore crucial to a community with little outside contact. More specfically, a river community.
