D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

No place emits that warm, nostalgic feeling better than an old-fashioned confectionery with its colorful jars, bottles and trays of sweet delicacies.

Such a location is now found in the Historic Village at D.B. Munger & Co.

Part exhibit, part true confectionery with fancy treats for purchase, the Historic Village opened its confectionery in June 2014.

D.B. Munger & Co. is now doing business in the old Physician's Office next to the Altay Store.

Visit on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to purchase freshly baked authentic or historically inspired delights such as Chelsea buns, fruit tarts, elderberry or other seasonal fruit hand pies, or the ever-popular rosewater currant cakes, sugar tea cakes and maple cakes (cookies).

A number of the bottles on exhibit are replicas of those found in several mid-1800s shipwrecks more than a century after the vessels went down. In some cases, the food was still edible!
