Watson’s Grocery Store was built in 1895 and continued, virtually unchanged, until 1989. Soon after, the State Center Historical Society was formed to save Watson’s Grocery as a landmark and museum. Step inside to see stocked oak shelves, roll-top bins and ice box. Sturdy benches and chairs still await customers who trade farm fresh produce for grocery items.


Memorial Day thru Labor Day, Sat & Sun 1-4. Also by appointment.
