Priddy’s General Store

Priddy's General Store has been an important part of the Danbury community for as long as most local old timers can remember. In 1888 the building was built by the Hartman Family,  and in 1929 N.D. and Lula Priddy purchased the building and opened "N.D. Priddy Grocery". 

Their son J. Elwood and his wife Pat took over the store in 1960. Since 1999 (after Elwood Priddy's death) Jane Priddy Charleville has been managing the store for her mother Pat. Jane is the 3rd generation Priddy to operate the store, continuing the old  traditions and maintaining the rustic atmosphere. 

Live Bluegrass music can be heard at Priddy's General Store at various times throughout the year as depicted in the above print. During cold weather the music is moved inside. 

It's all here, waiting for you to take a trip down memory lane, where old times are never forgotten. Priddy's is where you can forget the mad rush; Where time stands still. Where you can slowly peruse the things of the past, letting your mouth water at the sight of homemade jams and jellies. Oooh,  look over there at those homemade fried apple pies, so succulent and the crust perfectly browned! 

Priddy's is a journey you'll never forget. Lulled by the serenity and mountain setting it will get into your very being, often beckoning you back  to visit a "spell".  To once again experience time standing still. 

Priddy's General Store is open six days a week, Monday through Saturday 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM.
