This landmark is rich in history. It has been the meeting place of the Kansas Anti Horse Thief Association. It's also been a post office, creamery, telephone office, gathering place for the community and a place for farmers to bring in their produce and eggs.

The New Lancaster General Store is on the National Register of Historic Places. The old Store now proudly offers Middle Creek Winery artisan wines, locally grown and crafted, and is also a tour stop for the Miami County Trolley. Tours, groups and special events are welcome!
